2018-19 CSWS Research Awards

Jane Grant Fellowship, Graduate Research Grants, and Faculty Research Grants

2018–2019 Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship

  • Laura Strait

    Laura Strait, Media Studies, School of Journalism and Communication, “Occupying a Third Place: Pro-Life Feminism, Legible Politics, and the Edge of Women’s Liberation.” Strait’s research investigates pro-life feminism, looking “to read an alternative history of the feminist movement from the perspective of pro-life feminists in order to pinpoint incommensurabilities that in turn define the state of feminism(s) today. To this end, [the] project details the history of pro-life feminism as it runs parallel to mainstream histories of the feminist movement – focusing on departures in feminist philosophy from the logic and tenets of pro-life feminism.” Her award also includes a tuition remission grant from the Dean of the Graduate School.
