Announcing the Winner of the Inaugural John Money Award

We are pleased to announce that Ms. Sarah Lindsley, graduate student in the Department of History at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, has been selected as the recipient of the 2009 John Money Fellowship for Scholars of Sexology at The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.

Ms. Sarah Linsley, University of Washington, the 2009 Awardee of the John Money Fellowship for Scholars of Sexology.

Ms. Sarah Lindsley’s project is titled Sexuality and the National Body: Men’s Magazines and Female Sexuality.  Her research explores debates surrounding the depiction of female sexuality in print from the 1930s to 1970s and how these led to social and moral conflicts over the meaning of sexuality, female imaging, and mass culture. She will be using the collection to identify and analyze the modes of imaging the female body in publications as an erotic object designed to appeal to men, and how the modes have shifted or remained constant.

Ms. Lindsley  will also work on a bibliographical essay about the Kinsey Library collection of men’s magazines as part of her fellowship.  

The John Money Fellowship for Scholars of Sexology award of $3,000 is used for travel, lodging, and other expenses that are directly related to research activities at The Kinsey Institute, including those associated with the production of bibliographical essays and annotated bibliographies as part of the fellowship.
