2004 Doctoral Dissertation Advisor/Mentoring Awards

Emory ElliottProfessor Emory Elliott is one of the two winners of the UCR 2004 Doctoral Dissertation Advisor/Mentoring Awards.

Emory Elliott is University Professor in the English Department, where he has been a member of the UCR faculty since 1989. He is a Ph.D. of the University of Illinois, and was Professor and Chair of the English Department at Princeton University before coming to the Riverside campus. He is the winner of numerous awards and fellowships, including UCR's Distinguished Teaching Award (1993), and Rosemary Schraer Award for Humanitarian Service (in 1997). He is the author of Power and the Pulpit in Puritan New England (1975), Revolutionary Writers: Literature and Authority in the New Republic (1982), The Literature of Puritan New England (1994), and The Cambridge Introduction to Early American Literature (2002). He is the editor of numerous other books. Professor Elliot has supervised the dissertations of 25 students over the past decade, and these students are now faculty members at colleges and universities across the country. "One of the reasons I asked Emory to serve as my dissertation adviser" writes one former student, "is that he has a rich history of successful mentoring. I saw that Emory's students graduated and got jobs. I also noted that he worked well with a number of different kinds of students, whether they were introverted or extraverted, men or women, white or black." Another student observes that Emory Elliott "wears many hats: "As Dr. Elliott, he is a leader who encourages self-empowerment; as Professor Elliott, he is my mentor and adviser; and as Emory, he is my friend."
