The winner of the 2013 Siegel/McDaniel Award for Graduate Student Research on Philip Roth is Joseph Darda, for his paper “Picturing the Pastoral: Cold War Apologetics and Hypertrophic Memory in Philip Roth’s American Pastoral.“ Joseph is a PhD candidate at the University of Connecticut. His paper impressed the executive board with its originality and with the power of its argument. Joseph beat out an excellent slate of submissions that gives us renewed hope for the future of Roth studies. He wins a $250 cash prize, a year’s membership in the Roth Society, and the opportunity to work with the editor of Philip Roth Studies to turn his paper into an essay in the journal. Congratulations, Joseph!
