Regina Kunzel, Kevin Murphy: Lambda Literary Foundation 2009 Award Finalists

The Lambda Literary Foundation has just announced the finalists for its 2009 awards. Lambda Literary Awards "seek to recognize excellence in the field of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender literature. Each year, over 80 judges -- writers, booksellers, librarians, journalists -- assess the entries in more than 20 categories."

This year's finalists in the category of LGBT STUDIES include books by TWO of our colleagues: Criminal Intimacy: Prison and the Uneven History of Modern American Sexuality by Regina Kunzel (The University of Chicago Press) and Political Manhood: Red Bloods, Mollycoddles, & the Politics of Progressive Reform by Kevin P. Murphy (Columbia University Press).

Congratulations and Good Luck, Regina and Kevin!
