Marra elected as fellow in College of the Fellows of the American Theatre

Kim Marra, chair of the UI Department of American Studies and a professor of American studies and theatre arts in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, has been elected to become a fellow of the College of Fellows of the American Theatre. She will attend an induction ceremony in April 2010 at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. The annual assembly of fellows begins with the April reception that celebrates the work and contributions of new fellows and provides an opportunity to meet present members.

Marra was nominated by Jorge Huerta, who holds the Chancellor's Associate's Endowed Chair at the University of California, San Diego, and was the 2008 recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Award from the American Society for Theatre Research.

Since 1965 the College of Fellows of the American Theatre has honored select persons who have achieved acknowledged national stature for their distinguished service and accomplishment in the field of educational and professional theatre.
