Professor Kathryn Stockton served as the director of gender studies from 2000-2011 at the University of Utah, where she is also a distinguished professor of English. She has taught more than 20 graduate- and undergraduate-level courses throughout her career and has been recognized for both her teaching skills and her scholarship on numerous occasions. This past May, Kathryn Stockton was awarded another honor: the 2013 Rosenblatt Prize for Excellence, the University of Utah’s most prestigious award for a faculty member.

The Rosenblatt Prize for Excellence is an annual award presented to a faculty member at the University of Utah for excellence in teaching, research, and administration. The president of the university appoints a selection committee comprised of members of the university’s faculty and administration. The committee members recommend several of their colleagues as candidates for the prize to the president, who subsequently makes the final selection and announces the recipient during the university’s commencement exercises.

Kathryn Bond Stockton is the author several books, including The Queer Child, or Growing Sideways in the Twentieth Century.
