Event Date:

Professor Bashi Treitler is the 2020 recipient of the Cox-Johnson-Frazier award, a major prize from the American Sociological Association. The award will be presented at the ASA conference in San Francisco in August. In addition, her book The Ethnic Project made the list of top 100 books ever written by an African American woman, according to The Zora Canon. The third award recognizes her work as an artist: a triptych of three of her paintings was included in an exhibition about black girls called "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," for the Colored Girls Museum in Philadelphia. The museum won a grant from the Knight Foundation to work with Microsoft to create a virtual reality experience from this exhibition. Thus, professor Basi Treitler's work will travel wherever this VR experience will go.
