Sociology Undergrad Honors student receives prestigious Undergraduate Paper Award

Josephine Pang, an African Studies minor and a Sociology Honors student has received the prestigious Undergraduate Paper Award from the Association of Africanist Anthropology. Professor Ivan Evans and Professor Bennetta Jules-Rosette have served as her mentors. The Undergraduate Paper Award from the Association of Africanist Anthropology will be presented to Josephine Pang for her essay, “A Gendered Critique of Social/Sexual Network: The Case of HIV/AIDS in South Africa and Uganda.” The paper contains a thorough comparative analysis of the role social and cultural networks play in HIV education and prevention. Underlying this comparison rests a thoughtful critique of classical network theory, which Pang rewrites in order to highlight the primacy of “gendered nodes” in the discussion HIV/AIDS. We congratulate Josephine on her excellent essay, which offers significant contributions for both cross-cultural studies of social networks and practical strategies of HIV/AIDS.
