The Dana Greenblatt Feminist Media Award

The Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies offers an award up to $3,000 to undergraduate and graduate students conducting research in the feminist analysis and production of cultural representations across visual media. This award is named for the generous support of 1997 WGSS alumna and writer Dana Greenblatt, who wishes to support ongoing research in feminist media studies. It is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at the Ohio State University who are conducting research projects in feminist media studies.  

Projects may include but are not limited to activities such as screenwriting, filmmaking, archival research, oral histories, ethnographic research, or internship travel.
