Awards and Honors
Sociologist's book on high school girls receives
Critics Choice Award
Bettie, associate professor of sociology, has received the Critics
Choice Award from the American Educational Studies Association (AESA)
for her book Women Without Class: Girls, Race, and Identity (Berkeley,
Calif.: University of California Press, 2003).
The award was announced during AESAs annual conference, which
was held in Mexico City October 29 through November 2. Based on research
conducted with girls at a Central Valley high school, Bettie's book
shows the many ways in which young women's lives are shaped by class,
race, and gender.
AESA is an academic organization comprised primarily of college and
university professors who teach and conduct research in the field of
education using one or more of the liberal arts disciplines of philosophy,
history, politics, sociology, anthropology, or economics. Each year,
several members participate on the Critics' Choice Committee, nominating
books they feel are outstanding titles that may be of interest to scholars.
Three faculty members listed in Who's Who in
Three members of the UCSC economics faculty are listed in the most
recent edition of Whos Who in Economics. Professors Yin-Wong
Cheung, Daniel Friedman, and Carl Walsh were selected because of the
large number of citations their work received between 1990 and 2000.
