Professor of English and Twain Scholar Ben Click has been awarded a Quarry Farm Fellowship in Elmira, New York, for the fall of 2024.

Click completed a five-year tenure in December 2023 as the editor of “The Mark Twain Annual,” the official publication of the Mark Twain Circle of America. The annual publishes critical and pedagogical articles about Mark Twain, his writing and its literary and cultural legacy. It has an international readership and Click worked to increase the presence of international Twain scholars within the annual’s pages. Under his editorship, the annual published 54 critical and pedagogical articles and 20 book reviews. In addition, Click curated the annual’s first special issues: “Mark Twain and the Natural World” (2019) and “Mark Twain and the West” (2021) and produced two special symposia of the same names for the Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College in Elmira, New York.
