Vivien Hartog Awards

The department annually awards a Vivien Hartog Best Graduate Student Teacher Prize in memory of Vivien Hartog, who was a Ph.D. student in Sociology at Stony Brook and a Women’s Studies graduate certificate student. The $3000 award is given to the WGSS Ph.D. or certificate student who has not only received consistently high evaluations for their teaching, but has also demonstrated a strong commitment to social justice in and beyond the academy.

The second award, also funded by the Hartog family, consists of two annual travel grants of up to $500 each for graduate students to attend the Feminist Theory Workshop at Duke University. The workshop is designed to introduce both faculty and students to the latest work in feminist scholarship and theory and includes keynote talks and seminars. Both Hartog awards are open to WGSS graduate students and registered certificate students.
