The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences nominated recent SOCY PhD graduate Chandra Reyna's dissertation for the Charles A. Caramello Distinguished Dissertation Award. The award recognizes original work that makes an unusually significant contribution to the discipline. Reyna's dissertation is titled “Latinx Motherhood Reassessed: How Second and Later-Generation Latina Mothers Redefine Motherhood, Latinidad, and Pursue Intergenerational Healing.”

A multi-disciplinary campus committee, chaired by Distinguished University Professor Patricia Alexander from the Department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology, selected her dissertation to receive an Honorable Mention in the disciplinary area of Social Sciences.

Congratulations, Chandra!
