Professor Juno Parreñas Wins 2019 Michelle Rosaldo Book Prize
Dr. Juno Parreñas, Assistant Professor in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies, was recently awarded the 2019 Michelle Z. Rosaldo Book Prize for her book, Decolonizing Extinction: The Work of Care in Orangutan Rehabilitation!
The award is named for one of the earliest theorists in feminist anthropology, Michelle Z. Rosaldo. It is awarded biannually by the Association for Feminist Anthropology to authors whose first books are monographs that exemplify feminist anthropological theory and ethnographies that help to move the field forward and in new directions.
Dr. Parreñas specializes in environmental studies, global political economy, feminist science and technology studies, animal studies, and multispecies ethnography. She teaches courses in WGSS throughout the academic year, including Gender, Sexuality and Science (WGSST 4845) and her newest course, Food & Gender (WGSST 3101). Decolonizing Extinction: The Work of Care in Orangutan Rehabilitation is her first book.
Congratulations to Dr. Parreñas on her award and thank you for your hard work!
