Highlight: Tanya Sharpe receives the Aaron Rosen Lecture Award

Dr. Tanya Sharpe was awarded the Society for Social Work Research and the Brown School, Washington University in St. Louis 2023 Aaron Rosen Lecture Award.

The Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR) established the Aaron Rosen Lecture in conjunction with the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. The award was created to honour the lifetime achievement of Dr. Rosen and provide the SSWR membership with an annual scholarly lecture that will move the field forward in terms of the integration of practice and research.

The annual award is presented to a scholar who has accumulated a body of significant and innovative scholarship relevant to practice. Preference is given to nominees whose scholarly innovations directly speak to social work’s value base of social justice and inform practice methods and models that disrupt rather than replicate colonizing cycles and representations of oppression, disenfranchisement, marginalization, and its lived experience.

Dr. Sharpe presented her public lecture “Beyond a Seat at ‘the table’: Building a Legacy of Research for Black Survivors of Homicide Victims’ on April 19th.
