The WGST Research and Creative Activity Award is a one-year honorary appointment that recognizes excellence in scholarship and creative activity on women and gender by an affiliated faculty member in Women and Gender Studies at TCU. During the academic year of the award, the award recipient normally presents one public lecture on the scholarship or creative activity recognized by the award and leads one program to encourage research and creative activity on topics related to women and gender.
This year’s recipient of the Faculty Research and Creative Activity Award is Associate Professor of English Dr. Charlotte Hogg. In partial fulfillment of the award, Dr. Hogg gave a public lecture titled “Sorority Rhetorics: Heritage, History, & Sisterhood.” In a packed BLUU Ballroom with nearly 200 attendees, Dr. Hogg shared her research into the ways sororities at the national and local levels create and maintain bonds through shared history and narratives.
