UCSB Doctoral Student Awarded Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowship

Carly Thomsen receives $3,000 for expenses related to her women's studies research

Carly Thomsen, a doctoral student in feminist studies at UC Santa Barbara, has been awarded one of six 2012 Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowships in Women’s Studies from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

The Woodrow Wilson Women’s Studies program, the only national fellowship for doctoral work on issues of women and gender, supports the final year of dissertation writing for Ph.D. candidates in the humanities and social sciences doing interdisciplinary and original work on these issues.

Topics range from the social and political dynamics of gender-segregated spaces in Iran, to ways in which gender and race influenced mid-20th-century perspectives on juvenile justice in Chicago.

Thomsen’s dissertation, ‘‘I’m Just Me’: Queer Critiques of Gay Visibility, Identity, and Community from LGBTQ Women in the Rural Midwest,” examines representations, discourses and experiences.

Fellows receive $3,000 to be used for expenses connected with completing their dissertations, such as research-related travel, data work/collection and supplies. In addition, the dissertation titles will be publicized with leading scholarly publishers at the conclusion of the dissertation year.

Since its inception nearly six decades ago, the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship Foundation has awarded fellowships to more than 20,000 scholars. Among them are 13 Nobel Laureates, two Fields Medalists in mathematics, 14 Pulitzer Prize winners, 35 MacArthur Fellows, and 21 recipients of presidential and national medals.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
