Local Russian single women
Jennifer Utrata, assistant professor of comparative sociology, has been recognized with a prestigious national award for an article she wrote in a leading sociology journal.
The article, “Youth Privilege: Doing Age and Gender in Russia’s Single-Mother Families, ” was awarded the Distinguished Article honor in the sex and gender section of the awards at the American Sociological Association’s 2012 annual meeting on Friday, August. 17, in Denver. The article was first published in the October 2011 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Gender Society.
Award committee members said Utrata’s article exemplified the best of recent scholarship in the field and stood out amongst “an impressive slate of nominees.” The annual award recognizes research that makes a significant contribution to the field of sex and gender on the cutting edge of sociological inquiry. Utrata’s article was described as “sophisticated, theoretically and empirically rich, and an excellent example of intersectional analysis.”
The article describes how Russia’s transition to capitalism is playing out in families, with a focus on grandmothers who support single-mother family members. Much of today’s sociological research focuses on relationships as they are defined by race, class, gender, and sexuality. Utrata argues that age is a socially constructed power relation that is produced, enacted, and wielded in tandem with gender.
