The following is submitted on behalf of Yvonne Rogalski, Chair of the Whalen Academic Symposium Steering Committee:

Congratulations to all the students and faculty sponsors who participated in the Symposium!  

The following is a list of those students who won awards at the Symposium.

Recipients of this year's awards were selected through a two-step process.  The first step was to submit an abstract for award in early March.  The abstracts were separated into groups according to areas of research and discipline.  Each abstract was judged by at least two judges and the judges determined the finalists from each group.  

The finalists where then scheduled to present at finalist sessions during the Whalen Symposium.  Again, the finalists presentations were judged by at least two judges and the judges then determined the award winners.

Congratulations to all of the winners on a job well done!

Come explore your voice in a fun, informal workshop with touring singer-songwriter Eli Conley at 12 noon on Friday April 17 in the Handwerker Gallery. Total beginners to experienced singers are welcome! Queer and transgender folks all too often find spaces focused on singing lacking relevance to our lives, awareness of our needs, and commitment to collective liberation. It is a powerful act for LGBTQ people and our straight and cisgender allies to find the power in our voices, listen deeply to each other as singers and raise our voices together in song.
