Ianna Hawkins Owen Awarded Honorable Mention for Best LGBTQ Studies Article

Ianna Hawkins Owen‘s (English) essay “More: Cake, Feedism, and Asexuality” from Social Text (Vol. 40, No. 2) has received honorable mention for the Crompton-Noll Prize for Best LGBTQ Studies Article from the ASA’s Q/T Caucus and the MLA’s GLQ Caucus! Congratulations, Dr. Owen! 

The Crompton-Noll Award for best essay in lesbian, gay, queer studies in the modern languages/literatures pays tribute to Louis Crompton, who passed away in 2009, and Dolores Noll (Kent State University), two early scholar/activists who helped found the gay and lesbian caucus of the MLA. The award recognizes the important work of lesbian, gay, and queer studies in the modern languages and the history that has helped make this current work possible.
