Moscow Prize 2014
It is a pleasure for us to announce the three recipients of this year’s David and Linda Moscow Prize for Excellence in Teaching Composition:
Justine, James, and Rebecca bring a remarkable level of insight, enthusiasm, skill, and creativity to the teaching of writing. Please join us in congratulating them for their wonderful work.
We would also like to congratulate all of the excellent instructors who were nominated for the prize. Our selection committee had to make difficult decisions in choosing from such an impressive pool of applicants. We found it inspiring and humbling to read all of the nominees' materials, including the many glowing letters of support they received from their students and colleagues.
David and Linda Moscow make this prize possible, and we are grateful for their ongoing generosity to the Writing Program.
Eileen Pollack Essay in NYT
Essay on women in science by Eileen Pollack feature in New York Times.
From the article:
Last summer, researchers at Yale published a study proving that physicists, chemists and biologists are likely to view a young male scientist more favorably than a woman with the same qualifications. Presented with identical summaries of the accomplishments of two imaginary applicants, professors at six major research institutions were significantly more willing to offer the man a job. If they did hire the woman, they set her salary, on average, nearly $4,000 lower than the man’s. Surprisingly, female scientists were as biased as their male counterparts.
