Andrew Suozzo has taught at DePaul University in Chicago for the past twenty-five years. He has written two books on French topics; two of his articles have won the "French Review's" Gilbert Chinard Prize and Morot-Sir Prize for his writings on pedagogy. More recently, he has turned to the study of the marathon as a manifestation of mass culture and value transformation. His article, "The Chicago Marathon and Urban Renaissance", ('Journal of Popular Culture', Summer 2002) won the Russel B. Nye Award for the "best article" published in that journal in 2002-2003. His latest book, The Chicago Marathon (University of Illinois Press), is scheduled for publication in October 2006.
