There was more than one changing of the guard the first week of November 2020, as at our #ASEEES20 reception we passed the tiara from President Paula Michaels to our new president Melissa Bokovoy and thanked Betsy Hemenway for her 6 years as AWSS Vice President, President, and Past President.
We foster community through regular gatherings at annual and biennial conferences, collaboration with other affiliate organizations, frequent communication through our listserv as well as informal networking opportunities. We also connect with our members via social media. Please find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
In 2020 AWSS launched a fundraising effort to support a graduate research prize in honor of Patricia Herlihy and her incredible contributions to both the study of Ukraine as well as her support for multiple generations of scholars across disciplines engaged in study on Ukraine and its neighbors. Please consider making a donation to support the future of the field and honor the memory of a scholar who did so much to shape the field and her discipline. Select the Herlihy Prize For Graduate Research option on the drop-down menu through the Paypal link below.
AWSS awards prizes to scholars at all stages of their careers. We support the work of individuals who embody our organization's values and mission each year through the following awards.
