Beyond the usual academic missions

Nancy Rabinowitz the Recipient of LCC Award

from the release:

Professor of Comparative Literature Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz was recently named the winner of the 2016 LCC Activism Award by the Lambda Classical Caucus (LCC) of the Society for Classical Studies for her “tireless work promoting the rights and well-being of sexual minorities.”

According to the LCC website, the Activism Award “honors an LCC member who has worked to promote the rights and well-being of sexual minorities in ways that go beyond the usual academic missions of teaching and scholarship.”

One purpose of the LCC is “to promote research that reflects the personal and intellectual interests of queer scholars, and provide a bridge between Classics and the interdisciplinary fields of LGBT/Queer Studies, the history of sexuality, cultural studies, and gender theory.”
