Congratulations to Franklynn Bartol, winner of the Outstanding Graduating Sociology Student, MA Award! This award was created by the Canadian Sociological Association in 2013 to help Sociology Departments recognize their top graduating students. As a first-year PhD student in the University of Toronto’s Sociology Department, Franklynn is an active member of the research community and has already won an impressive number of awards. Some of these include: presenting multiple times at leading social science conferences, a SSHRC Canadian Graduate Scholarship (Masters), and a Bridge Award for Outstanding Scholarship, jointly granted from Yale and University College London. Franklynn has a background in developmental neuroscience and is using that prior knowledge to examine how scientists’ beliefs about sex and gender influence their research design and interpretation of evidence.
