The Carrie Chapman Catt Prize for Research on Women and Politics is “designed to encourage and reward scholars embarking on significant research in the area of women and politics”. This year, Mark Daku (political science) was one of the award winners.
Dr. Daku received the award for his work on a program that analyzes gendered text. “The study will develop and test a reliable dictionary for automated measurement to expand the capacity of researchers to assess gendered language in a comparable, replicable and efficient way.”
