Alice Kang, associate professor of ethnic studies and political science, has won the Best Paper Award from the European Journal of Politics and Gender. She shares the award with her co-author Peace Medie, University of Bristol, for their article "Power, Knowledge and the Politics of Gender in the Global South." 

"Medie and Kang’s article should be applauded for the very powerful statement it makes: it constitutes an important contribution to the growing body of knowledge questioning the dominance of certain voices within the discipline. The research was further commended for being rigorously conceived - merging pragmatism and precedent in determining the research design – and its production of original analysis," said the EJPG Awarding Committee in the official announcement

Kang will be receiving the award at the European Conference on Politics and Gender in Amsterdam this July.
