The U-M Center for Japanese Studies has awarded history of art undergraduate student (minor) Mary Hannahan the William P. Malm Award for Outstanding Student Writing in Japanese Studies for her paper "Pleasing the Kami through the Art of the Heike Nogyo."
Funded by a grant from the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, the William P. Malm Award for Outstanding Student Writing in Japanese Studies honors Professor Emeritus William P. Malm, a long-time faculty member of the Center for Japanese Studies, the leading ethnomusicologist of Japan and one of the founders of the field of ethnomusicology in the United States.
Founded in 2010, the Malm Award seeks to encourage and recognize exceptional writing on Japan. Two awards, of $500 each, are awarded annually, one for an outstanding paper by an undergraduate, and the other for an outstanding paper by a graduate student.
