In 2007, Gender, Place and Culture introduced an annual award for new and emerging scholars with funds supplied by Taylor & Francis. The Editors for Gender, Place and Culture are very pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 Annual Award for New and Emerging Scholars.
Kelsey Hanrahan, Towson University
Beth Wangari Kamunge, University of Sheffield
Dr. Kelsey Hanrahan will be presenting her work at the Emotional Geographies Conference in Long Beach, California, in June of this year. Her paper, entitled “The work of love when you can no longer work: Older women’s emotional experiences of dependency in northern Ghana,” is based on her dissertation work completed in 2015.
Beth Wangari Kamunge will be presenting her work at the Royal Society of Geographers with the IBG in London, United Kingdom, in August of this year. Her paper, entitled “The kitchen as a safe feminist space for marginalized knowledges?”, is part of her ongoing research for her doctoral dissertation.
We would encourage those who are attending these conferences to attend these presentations and celebrate their accomplishments together.
