Education professor Özlem Sensoy, along with Christopher Stonebanks of Bishop's University, were recently selected for the 2010 Philip C. Chinn Book Award for their new book Muslim Voices in School: Narratives of Identity and Pluralism.

"Muslim Voices in School: Narratives of Identity and Pluralism makes a key contribution to the literature in multicultural education, as well as to teachers’ and researchers’ knowledge about Muslim students’ experiences in the West. Drs. Sensoy and Stonebanks describe the book as “a collection of readable, accessible, compelling, varied, voiced, passionate, real, textured, multi-faceted, hybrid, fearless, fearful, cautious, bold, modest, and inspired accounts of living Islam in relation to mainstream schooling in the West."

Every year the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) recognizes innovative and outstanding work that makes major contributions in the field of multicultural education. These awards are nominated by the membership.
