Writing Awards Graduate 2020

The Gender Studies Program is eager to support graduate student writing that has gender and/or sexuality as a key focus and that demonstrates students’ ability to apply their Gender Studies education in original scholarship or creative work.

Our annual G. Margaret Porter Gender Studies Graduate Writing Awards honor:

  • the best graduate student essay written for a course or conference, and
  • the best thesis chapter, dissertation chapter, journal article, or book chapter.

These awards are named in honor of G. Margaret Porter, a retired Gender Studies Librarian at the Hesburgh Library who enabled high-caliber research in gender by ensuring that students and faculty had access to the best resources in Gender Studies and include a cash award of $150.
