University of Delaware Scholar’s Book Honored by the American Political Science Foundation

Kara Ellerby, associate professor of political science and international relations at the University of Delaware, has received the Victoria Schuck Award from the American Political Science Association, which is given annually for the best book on women and politics. This award honors the late Victoria Shuck, a political scientist, Mount Holyoke College professor, and Mount Vernon College president.

Dr. Ellerby was honored for her book No Shortcut to Change: An Unlikely Path to a More Gender Equitable World (New York University Press, 2017). The book examines weaknesses in international gender policy and why recent policies to improve women’s status in the world have not worked.

Dr. Ellerby teaches graduate and undergraduate classes in the department of women and gender studies and has been a University of Delaware faculty member since 2011. Her research interests include global gender equality policy, gender and peace-building, and feminist international relations.

Dr. Ellerby holds a bachelor’s degree in Latin American studies and Spanish from Lake Forest College in Illinois and a master’s degree and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Arizona.
