Sisters in Crime Awards Two Academic Research Grants
Share |

In its second year now, Sisters in Crime has awarded grants to support scholars who are studying gender and diversity in crime fiction. These grants will cover up to $500 toward the purchase of books needed for research.

The grant recipients for 2016 are:

  • Kelly Ross, Assistant Professor of English at Rider University
  • Ann Rea, University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown

“These projects speak to Sisters in Crime’s mission, to promote the ongoing advancement, recognition and professional development of women crime writers,” according to Barbara Fister, board member and coordinator of an ongoing project to monitor the gender breakdown of book reviews. “We’re delighted to help these accomplished early-career scholars advance our understanding of women’s contribution to the genre.”

Updated:  The final reports of the 2016 grant recipients are available now and make for fascinating reading. Use the "more in this section" drop-down box or navigate to the 2016 Academic Research Grant Reports.
