Professor Marlow honored for second time by the Media Ecology Association
NEW YORK, NY- July 6, 2016- Baruch College journalism professor Eugene Marlow, Ph.D. has been named the winner of the 2016 John Culkin Award for Outstanding Praxis in the Field of Media Ecology by the Media Ecology Association (MEA). The award was announced at the 17th Annual Meeting of the association in Bologna, Italy at an awards banquet on June 25.
Dr. Marlow served as producer and director of “Zikkaron/Kristallnacht: A Family Story”, a nine-minute video that describes the events of November 9-10, 1938 all over Germany and parts of Austria when, on the pretext of the assassination of a German diplomat in Paris, the Nazis destroyed thousands of Jewish-owned stores, buildings, synagogues, and homes. The events of Kristallnacht are told from Dr. Marlow’s maternal family’s perspective. They were present in Leipzig, Germany, during the event. Support for this project was provided by a PSC-CUNY Award, jointly funded by The Professional Staff Congress and The City University of New York (CUNY).
The MEA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the study, research, criticism, and application of media ecology in educational, industry, political, civic, social, cultural, and artistic contexts, and the open exchange of ideas, information, and research among the association’s members and the larger community.
Dr. Marlow was previously honored by the MEA. In 2010, he won the James W. Carey Award for Outstanding Journalism.
