Part-time instructor wins award for article

Mary Ann Irwin, a part-time history professor at DVC since 1996, won the Eisenstein-DeLacy Prize for the best published article by a member of the National Coalition of Independent Scholars.

She won the prize for “Sex, War, and Community Service: The Battle for San Francisco’s Jewish Community Center,” which was published in the “Gender and the City” issue of “Frontiers: A Journal of Woman’s Studies.”

As quoted on the DVC website, Irwin said, “An award like this confirms that I can be part of the academic community, even as an adjunct.”
