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”
