Professor John Zilcosky was featured on the front page of the FAS website: http://www.artsci.utoronto.ca, and here: https://news.artsci.utoronto.ca for winning the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The Bessel is awarded in recognition of the entire body of work of a scholar in any academic discipline in a world-wide selection process. There are only roughly 20 Bessel Award recipients per year. Since 2013, out of the roughly 100 Bessel Award winners, only 14 world-wide were from the Humanities, and out of these only two from Canadian institutions. Congratulations to John Zilcosky on this fabulous recognition of his scholarly work.
