Grad Students Kostina-Ritchey and Chawla Win Awards at TTU Arts and Humanities Conference

The discipline of Human Development and Family Studies primarily falls within the social sciences. That didn’t stop two of our graduate students, Erin Kostina-Ritchey and Manju Chawla, from winning awards at the university’s recent Arts and Humanities Graduate Student Research Conference, however. The official entries for Erin and Manju are as follows:

Kostina-Ritchey, Erin, College of Human Sciences, Panel: The Individual and Representation (first place)

“Representation of Birth Families in Children’s Books about Adoption”

Chawla, Manju, College of Human Sciences, Panel: Childhood and Parenting (second place)

“Parenting Style as a Correlate of Aggression Among Rural Adolescents in Different Socio-Economic Strata in India”

A list of all winners is available here.
