New Feminist Studies award.

The Claire Goldberg Moses Award for the Most Theoretically Innovative Article Published in the Journal

Feminist Studies is pleased to announce the creation of a new award for academic excellence, the "Claire Goldberg Moses Award for the Most Theoretically Innovative Article." This award, to be given to the most theoretically innovative article published in Feminist Studies each year, was created to honor Claire G. Moses on her retirement as editorial director of Feminist Studies, a position she had held since 1977.

The inaugural award goes to Leigh Gilmore and Elizabeth Marshall for their article, "Girls in Crisis: Rescue and Transnational Feminist Autobiographical Resistance," which was published in Feminist Studies, volume 36, number 3 (Fall 2010). Through an examination of three autobiographical performances by Harriet Jacobs, Rigoberta Menchfi, and Marjane Satrapi, the article discusses how women in a range of national and transnational locations use their own girlhood in first-person testimonial narratives to speak about race, to alter the politics of resuce, and to teach about social injustice.
