Professor and Associate Dean Leila Rupp Honored


Professor of feminist studies and associate dean of social sciences Leila Rupp is having a banner year. In January, at its 130th annual conference, the American Historical Association offered the session “Transforming Women’s History: Leila Rupp — Scholar, Editor, and Mentor,” in which five scholars from assorted illustrious universities discussed her impact on the field. Her latest book, “Understanding and Teaching U.S. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History” (University of Wisconsin Press, 2014), won a 2015 Lambda Literary Award for Best Anthology. Akin to the Oscars, the “Lammys,” as they’re known, celebrate the best LGBT books of the year.
