Alan Nadel's "Reading the Body: Alice Walker's Meridian and the Archeology of Self," which appeared in the Spring issue (volume 34, number 1, 55-68), was judged the best article to appear in 1988. Professor Nadel received $250 and a copy of the certificate appearing opposite.
The outside panel of judges making the selection was composed of John Halperin (chair), Centennial Professor of English, Vanderbilt University; Jerome Klinkowitz, Professor of English, University of Northern Iowa; and Linda Wagner-Martin, Professor of English, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
The Editors of MFS congratulate Mr. Nadel, who is Associate Professor of English, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and former member of the Purdue English Department and an Advisory Editor to MFS. We are also grateful to the selection committee for the many hours they devoted to selecting this year's winner.
The Margaret Church MFS Memorial Prize was established in 1984 in memory of Ms. Church, Professor of English and of Comparative Literature here at Purdue University and long-time co-Editor of this journal. She died in 1982. Winners of this annual prize will be announced in summer issues of MFS.
