Formerly the SWAGS Prize
In memory of Professor Rose Olver, this prize is awarded annually to the thesis that best analyzes the construction of gender in conjunction with the historical, political, social, cultural, or psychological experiences of subjects. The project should also address gender relations as they intersect with class, race, sexuality, or nationality. Finally, the project should consider the broader implications of its conclusions for the field of sexuality, women’s, and gender studies.
Graduating seniors whose theses focus on sexuality, women’s and gender studies and who have taken two or more courses in these areas, at least one of which was through the Amherst College SWAGS Department, are invited to apply.
Your submission must include:
- One-paragraph abstract
- Titles of the sexuality, women’s and gender studies courses that you have taken
Please e-mail your submission, as an attachment, to the Amherst College SWAGS Department.
The submission deadline has been EXTENDED to FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 2017.
For more information contact Stephanie Orion, ADC of SWAGS, at 413-542-5781 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
