Communication of Results
We are very glad to announce the 2017 IASSCS Research Grantees. We received more than 100 applications, from throughout the world. The quality and varierty of proposals made the selection process very hard. We think the selected proposals represent a wide range of research disciplines and topics, and represent each region of IASSCS membership.
The 2017 IASSCS Research Grantees are:
- Evie Browne, with the research entitled Queering Cuba: Gender, identity and sociality
- María Eugenia Monte, with the research entitled Feminist Disputes over Abortion Regulation in Argentina. Juridical Matrix emerging during the Constitutional Reform (1994)
- Nelson Muparamoto, with the research entitled Understanding Silent Identities. Gays and Lesbian Experiences in Harare, Zimbabwe

- Xingcan Pi, with the research entitled Proposal for Qualitative Research on Gender-equitable Men's Masculinities in contemporary Urban China - Based on Life Course Theory
Additionally, these researchers will present their initial findings in the 2017 IASSCS Conference, to be held in Bangkok, Thailand. Congratulations to the new IASSCS grantees!
