Ilana Feldman, Assistant Professor of International Affairs and Anthropology, has been awarded this year's Horizons Prize from the Society for Cultural Anthropology (SCA) for her article "Difficult Distinctions: Refugee Law, Humanitarian Practice, and Political Identification in Gaza."
Bruce Grant, president of the SCA, writes that "the Prize was designed to represent not only the best work in a given annual volume of the society's journal, Cultural Anthropology, but to more broadly identify the kinds of work seen by our doctoral student jury as emblematic of what is most needed in anthropologies ahead. The Prize comes with an honorarium of $500." The award will be formally presented at the SCA's annual business meeting in November.
