The LANG Ann Snitow Award is an award that is given every year to an undergraduate student in recognition of their work in gender and sexualities studies.
For the Academic year of 2020-2021, the directors of Gender Studies at the New School in consultation with the Gender Studies Faculty have chosen Diana Edelman as recipient of the LANG Ann Snitow Award.
My name is Diana Edelman. I am a fourth year Literary Studies major, with an emphasis in Playwriting, and a minor in Philosophy. My favorite courses at the New School have been Melodrama in the Arts with Elana Greenfield, Theories of Subjectivity with Daniel Rodriguez-Navas, and Theater of Cruelty with Rose Rejois – all genius professors. Rose Rejois encourages creative projects, and with her I have been able to create several video projects, including a video manifesto inspired by Antonin Artaud. This Third Manifesto of Cruelty attempts to expose the trappings of identity as categories, established by society, for what they are – absurd – and is based on the idea that no one can be free until we all are.
Delia Rogers, 2019-2020
My name is Delia Rogers, I am a third year at Lang studying Global Studies and Gender Studies. I think that my favorite class has been Ecofeminism and Global Justice with Abigail Perez Aguilera, she is an amazing professor and her classes are all so so wonderful. In her class, I completed a project on collective memory which looked at the lives of midwives and examined the marginalization of midwifery practices within medicine in the United States using an anti-colonial, anti-capitalist, ecofeminist framework.
