Published on October 04 2013


A Brock professor’s latest book of poetry that explores the intersection of poetry and chemistry has been shortlisted for a Governor General’s Literary Award.

Adam Dickinson, associate professor of English Language and Literature, has been nominated for the literary award, one of Canada’s most prestigious, for his book, The Polymers, published by House of Anansi Press in 2013.

He is one of five finalists in the category for English-language poetry.

“I am absolutely thrilled by this nomination,” says Dickinson. “It means so much to me to receive this recognition from my peers. I feel really fortunate to be able to do the work that I do at Brock, surrounded as I am in the English Department by such extraordinary scholars, writers, and teachers.”
