Congratulations to WGSS Professor Judith Raiskin for Herman Award, Faculty Research Mentor Award and Williams Fund Award

Herman Award for Specialized Pedagogy

Faculty Research Mentor Award from the Center for Undergraduate Research and Engagement

Williams Fund Award for Eugene Lesbian History Project

Professor Raiskin’s work in the College of Arts and Sciences is around post-colonial literature and cultural studies, and focuses on gender and comparative feminist theory, disability studies, LGBTQ studies, and sexuality.

“My goal in teaching is to help students understand themselves better and to learn about a world beyond their experiences,” Raiskin says. “Over the years, my focus has become facilitating the process of learning more than delivering content. I try to encourage students to feel their own need for the content to answer their own questions.”
