2020 April: Lerner-Scott PrizeOrganization of American Historians

My project “Creating Norma Rae: The Erasure of Puerto Rican Needleworkers and Southern Labor Activists in a Neoliberal Icon” received the Lerner-Scott Prize for the best doctoral dissertation in U.S. women’s history. The prize committee described it as “a stunningly successful combination of original scholarship, compelling prose, and sophisticated argumentation.” I am so appreciative for all the scholars, librarians, archivists, and friends who supported, guided, and advised me on this project. And I am so appreciative for all the people who have developed and enriched the field of U.S. women’s history.
