The University of Washington Bothell has presented Jeanne Heuving, a founding faculty member and professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, the 2017 Distinguished Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity Award.

“Heuving’s achievements in scholarship and creativity give students an example and mentoring that encourages their own innovation, collaborative learning and discovery,” Chancellor Wolf Yeigh said.

Heuving led the effort to create the Master of Fine Arts in creative writing and poetics and now directs the program. She has published two books of literary scholarship and two books of poetry and cross-genre writing.

They include “The Transmutation of Love and Avant-Garde Poetics” (2016) and “Incapacity” (2004). Heuving also initiated Clamor, the campus literary and arts journal, and oversaw it through its first few years.

With UW Bothell since 1990, Heuving’s classes have included “Languages of Poetry,” “Women and American Literature: Between Sincerity and Masquerade,” and “Literature and Sexuality.”

The award carries a $5,000 honorarium.
