Caroline Maloney and Erin Hinz win Gender Studies writing awards

Author: Lonnie Atkinson

The Department of Art, Art History & Design would like to announce a sweep in the writing awards this year for Gender Studies.

Caroline Maloney’s essay “More Stunning Than Can Decently Be Expressed: Desire and Control in the Stunners of Dante Gabriel Rossetti” has won the 2011-2012 Philip L. Quinn Essay Prize!

And Erin Hinz has won this year’s Gender Studies Graduate Writing Prize with her essay “The Work of Leonora Carrington: An Alchemical Transmutation of Gender through Magic, Animals, and Narrative.”

Not only were both winners from AAHD, both essays were written in Professor Kathleen Pyne’s Theories of Art Seminar. With stiff competition across the college, these students are stellar representatives for our entire department.

Congrats, Caroline and Erin!
