Professor Lorraine Code receives major award from Royal Society of Canada

 

The Royal Society of Canada has recognized Professor Lorraine Code with the very prestigious Ursula Franklin Award in Gender Studies. The RSC announcement reads as follows: "Since the 1980s, philosopher Lorraine Code has contributed mightily to the field of gender studies. Her foundational study in feminist epistemology—What Can She Know?—provided a vital theoretical framework for scholars of gender studies based in multiple disciplines. In Rhetorical Spaces and Ecological Thinking, Code broadened and deepened her earlier thinking, taking into account the intersection of gender with myriad other elements of the knowing subject."  See Y-File story here.
