We’re very excited to be able to announce that Professor Katherine Turk has just been announced as one of the recipients of UNC’s prestigious Tanner Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. Dr. Turk specializes in the histories of women, gender and sexuality, and social movements in the United States.
In an observation of her class, one of Dr. Turk’s colleagues explained: “In many ways, this was an exemplary perfect class which could be recorded and marketed as books on tapes to general audience…Turk’s abilities and preparation as an undergraduate instructor is truly impressive.”
You can read more about her work and learn about the other award-winnings this year here or read the write-up in The Well. Congratulations, Dr. Turk!
