Politics Professor Receives Carroll University Faculty Award

April 21, 2011

An associate professor of political science has received the annual Carroll University award that recognizes excellence in teaching, research and educational innovation.

 

Dr. Lilly J. Goren of Shorewood was presented the Benjamin F. Richason Jr. Faculty Award at Celebrate Carroll, the university's annual academic conference, on April 20, 2011. Goren earned her bachelor's degree at Kenyon College and her master's and doctorate degrees at Boston College, and joined the Carroll faculty in 2005.

 

The award is a memorial established by the family, friends and colleagues of the late Professor Benjamin Richason, a professor of geography at Carroll from 1952 until his death in 1988.

 

In announcing the award, Dr. Joanne Passaro, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said that Goren is described as "inspiring" in the classroom, and is an effective communicator of knowledge as she engages her students. Many see her as "a role model, a strong, intelligent woman who holds the respect of peers and students alike."

 

Goren is a widely respected political analyst and commentator who is able to bring clarity and insight to many of the complex political events and issues of our time. She has a "truly impressive" publication record, including her 2009 book of collected essays, "You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby: Women, Politics & Popular Culture." She had four publications in 2010, including "Profits and Protest: The Cultural Commodification of the Presidential Image" and a co-authored chapter in "Politics and Popular Culture."

 

After a recent promotion, Goren will be a professor of political science, effective July 2011.
