  • Pernille Ipsen's article, “‘The Christened Mulatresses’: Euro-African Families in a Slave-Trading Town,” has won the Mary Maples Dunn Prize for the best article in early American women’s history by an untenured scholar published in the William and Mary Quarterly. The prize committee found it "theoretically innovative and engagingly written, providing a fresh and rich reading of gender, sexuality, household and family."

    Caroline VanSickle, who is completing her PhD in biological anthropology at the University of Michigan, has been selected as the inaugural Wittig Postdoctoral Fellow in Feminist Biology. VanSickle studies female hominins by investigating changes in pelvis shape – and therefore childbirth anatomy – over the course of human evolution. Her upcoming research will focus on South African australopithecine species dating from 1.5 to 3 million years ago. She joins the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies in September and will teach a course on gender and biology each semester, with the rest of her time devoted to research and absorbing knowledge from the Department.
