2020 SWS Distinguished Feminist Lecturer Award Winner!

Congratulations to Katie L. Acosta, the 2020 SWS Distinguished Feminist Lecturer Award Winner

The 2020 SWS Distinguished Feminist Lecturer Award Winner is Katie L. Acosta. Thank you to the SWS Distinguished Feminist Lecturer Subcommittee that was comprised of Marybeth C. Stalp (Chair), Kimberly Kelly, Angela Hattery, and Koyel Khan. The SWS Distinguished Lectureship was founded in 1985 as a way of recognizing members whose scholarship employs a feminist perspective, and of making this feminist scholar available to campuses that are isolated, rural, located away from major metropolitan areas, bereft of the resources needed to invite guest speakers, and/or characterized by hostility to feminist scholarship. A key goal of the program is to provide a feminist voice on campuses where such a perspective is unusual and/or unwelcome. Please note that the Lectureship originally carried the name of Cheryl Allyn Miller, but now there is a separate Cheryl Allyn Miller Award.
