We are happy to be able to honor their work with this years WGSS Significant Achievement Award.
They could: (1) complete the traditional paper as planned; (2) design a course as their WGSS counterparts did; or (3) present their research at an academic conference (the speech).
Tellingly, one WGSS major noted that the traditional research paper makes WGSS "look more academically rigorous" but preferred the syllabus project because it felt like "a radical and subversive way to do academic work." (30) As a fairly new interdiscipline, WGSS engages in near-constant conversations about its academic culture with detractors, outsiders, and frequently, given the self-reflexive nature of the field, itself.
(16) The WGSS seminar does not center on a 25-30 page research paper at present.
We performed detection of the virulence genes cif, efa1, espABCFIJP, etpD, iha, iss, katP, Ipfa, nleABC, tccP, tir, toxB, ehxA, and espP and the serotype determination in silico on the WGSs. We used blastn (available on the Aries public Galaxy server at https://w3.iss.it/site/ aries/) to search databases containing the reference sequences of all the known virulence and serotype-associated genes of pathogenic E.
However, the analysis of the WGSs failed to identify the ehxA and the pap-like sequences, suggesting that the entire pSFO plasmid was not present.
The region downstream to the tRNA loci was also detected, but with different degrees of variation among the WGSs; for example, the presence of an additional DNA stretch of [approximately equal to] 24 kb in the strain BCW5746 (online Technical Appendix).
According to the WGSS Graduate Handbook, "Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies responds to a growing national demand for interdisciplinary scholars who use women, gender, and sexuality as analytic tools for understanding human behavior, society, literature, and the arts, globally, internationally, and cross-culturally." Courses such as History of Gender, United States Women's History, and Feminist Anthropology provide an appropriate foundation for students to springboard into the professional world.
candidates are also required to take 18 credit hours in a concentration approved by WGSS. Approved concentrations thus far include African and African-American Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Film and Media Studies, History, History of Art, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Theatre.
A plaque and $750 award, donated by Duke University Press, will be presented to Conkling at a WGSS event during the ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans.
Diedre Conkling has been the linchpin that holds together the collective womens groups in ALA, including WGSS, the Feminist Task Force (FTF), the Committee on the Status of Women in Librarianship (COSWL), and the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) Women Administrators Discussion Group, said award chair Dolores Fidishun, head librarian at Penn State Abington.
For her leadership in bringing light to womens and gender issues in our profession, we are proud to honor her with the WGSS Career Achievement Award.
