Vera Chang awarded visual sociology prize

June 25, 2018

Graduate student Vera Chang's photo and article, "Disruptions in Vermont’s Landscape" has  won third prize in the Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology.  The award is given biennially to three students who effectively integrate visual stimuli into social science research.  Chang's piece explores dairy workers’ everyday lives prior to the inauguration of Milk with Dignity, a migrant justice’s worker-driven social responsibility program that contractually obligates large milk buyers to fund and uphold stringent farm labor protections.
