Jerome E. Morris, a professor of social foundations of education and a Research Fellow in UGA’s Institute for Behavioral Research, will receive the Feldman Award from the Groves Conference on Marriage and Family during the group’s annual conference March 14-18 in New Orleans.

The award, which comes with a $1,000 prize, is given to an author or authors of a peer-reviewed journal article or book chapter published within the past five years that makes a significant social policy contribution to understanding ethnicity and/or gender.

Morris received the award for the article “Out of New Orleans: Race, Class and Researching the Katrina Diaspora,” which was published in a July 2008 issue of the journal Urban Education.
