Professor Jakeet Singh from the Department of Politics and Government has been awarded the American Political Science Association’s Okin-Young Award.
Co-sponsored by three sections–Women and Politics, Foundations of Political Theory, and the Women’s Caucus for Political Science–the Okin-Young Award in Feminist Political Theory commemorates the scholarly, mentoring, and professional contributions of Susan Moller Okin and Iris Marion Young to the development of the field of feminist political theory. This annual award recognizes the best paper on feminist political theory published in an English language academic journal during the previous calendar year.
Previous recipients have included leading theorists such as Bonnie Honig and Joan Tronto. Singh was awarded for his paper title “Religious Agency and the Limits of Intersectionality” published in Hypatia, Volume 30, Issue 4, 657–674, Fall 2015.
