Emory PCSW Student Writing Award

January 29, 2012 § Leave a comment

I learned this past week that my essay “Mary E. Hutchinson’s Two of Them” won this year’s Student Writing Award presented by the President’s Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) at Emory University.  According to the PCSW, the “annual writing awards are designed to highlight and celebrate outstanding student scholarship on issues of importance to women.”

The essay focuses on Hutchinson’s painting titled Two of Them (c.1933) which has recently resurfaced.  It considers the ways in which the limits of art and history have rendered Hutchinson’s engagement with gender and sexuality unintelligible.

A revised version of the essay is currently under review by a women’s studies scholarly journal.
