Graduate Student Amy Lodge Receives 2012 Norval Glenn Prize
Posted: February 29, 2012
Graduate student Amy Lodge is the 2012 winner of the Norval Glenn Prize for her paper "All Shook Up: Sexuality of Mid- to Later-Life Married Couples." The paper was selected from an excellent pool of nominations by a faculty committee composed of Dr Shannon Cavanagh (chair), Dr Gloria Gonzalez-Lopez, and Dr Mark Regnerus. The committee praised the paper as "theoretically motivated, empirically sophisticated…[and] beautifully written" with "clear contributions to the literatures on aging, marriage, and gender."
The Department of Sociology established the Norval Glenn Prize in 2011 to celebrate the memory of Dr. Norval Glenn by giving an annual award to the best graduate student paper in the sociology of family.
Amy will receive a cash award for her paper, and her name will be inscribed on a plaque that will remain in the Sociology Department office.
The Norval Glenn Prize is supported by generous donations from colleagues, family, and friends from around the nation. For more information about the award, including instructions on how to donate to the fund, please click here.
