Fairfield professor wins book award

Wendy Kohli, Ph.D., professor of educational foundations at Fairfield University’s Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions, has won a 2012 Critics Choice Book Award from the American Educational Studies Association (AESA) for her book “Feminism and Educational Research” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2012). Kohli co-wrote the book with Nicholas C. Burbules.

The book was nominated by a member of the organization and reviewed by a committee of AESA members. They decided the book “makes an outstanding contribution to scholarship in the Social Foundations of Education field” and added it to the 2012 winners list.

Kohli, a Hamden resident, and other recipients will be honored at the AESA meeting later this month in Seattle.

“This is a significant achievement,” said Susan Franzosa, Ph.D., dean of the University’s Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions. “We are certainly proud to have such an accomplished scholar on the Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions’ faculty. Professor Kohli’s work enriches the education our students receive here at Fairfield.”
