Teaching Excellence Awards

Posted on 24/05/2012
Jo Malt

The School of Arts & Humanities is pleased to announce that Dr Jo Malt, Senior Lecturer in French, and Dr David Rojinsky, Lecturer in Latin American Studies, have been awarded the King’s Teaching Excellence Award.

Dr Malt teaches undergraduate courses on Proust, modernity and modernism, and translation, as well as graduate courses on the historical avant-gardes, French psychoanalytic theory and the Marxist tradition in literary and critical theory. This year her students have been blogging their experience of reading Proust’s A la recherche du temps perdu.

Dr Rojinsky teaches modules devoted to contemporary Latin American cultures of memory, combining textual, photographic and filmic primary sources, at both the BA and MA levels. His research interests include Latin American Cultural Studies, Contemporary Latin American memory art (photography, cinema, museums and literature), Anthropology and Literature, Visual Studies, and History & Fiction.

Teaching Excellence Awards were introduced by the College in 2002 to provide students with an opportunity to recognise teaching staff from each School.  Staff and students may make nominations based on the motivation and interest encouraged by the teaching, the organisation and management of the module or programme and the levels of interaction and innovation.

Professor Jan Palmowski, the Head of the School of Arts & Humanities, commended both award-winners: 'This year's Teaching Excellence Awards go to two members of staff who represent the outstanding quality of our teaching in the Modern Languages. Jo Malt in the French Department, and David Rojinsky in the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies both come from departments that have regularly received wonderful feedback on their teaching. Jo and David have shown a sustained commitment to students that goes far above the call of duty, not just in the classroom, but also outside as they supported students in difficult times, tirelessly wrote references for job applications, and gave extra advice on academic matters. This award is richly deserved by both colleagues, as they stand for an ethos that distinguishes our care for students more generally.'
