Congratulations to Jules Gill-Peterson, winner of a Chancellor's Distinguished Research Award!

Children's lit faculty member, Jules Gill-Peterson, has won a Chancellor's Distinguished Research Award. According to the university announcement, Dr. Gill-Peterson was "honored in the Junior Scholar category for how she leveraged research to uncover the history of the transgender child. Gill-Peterson successfully contested the notion that children only recently have been identified as transgender and recognized that idea as a means of discrediting and infantilizing trans youth."

Congratulations to Dr. Gill-Peterson!
