Josh Neufeld awarded a Knight-Wallace Fellowship

Josh Neufeld, the cartoonist behind "A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge," which was serialized online in Smith Magazine before being published as a book. The Knight-Wallace Fellows program is at the University of Michigan and is awarded to mid-career journalists. It's great to see Josh getting such recognition and for a cartoonist to receive acclaim for nonfiction journalism.

According to Josh's blog:

My study plan is to extensively research Bahrain’s Pearl Revolution (which I did a short piece about for Cartoon Movement, the Eisner Award-nominated “Bahrain: Lines in Ink, Lines in the Sand“). I plan on taking courses in the history of the Persian Gulf, Islam (specifically the Sunni-Shia divide), and the language and culture of the region. The ultimate goal is to produce a long-form comics-format book on the topic.

Can't wait to read it.
