Amrute Books Wins Diana Forsythe Prize

November 15, 2017

UW Associate Professor Sareeta Amrute was awarded the Diana Forsythe Prize by the American Anthropological Association for her book Encoding Race, Encoding Class: Indian IT Workers in Berlin (Duke University Press, 2016). The Diana Forsythe Prize was created in 1998 to celebrate the best book or series of published articles in the spirit of Diana Forsythe’s feminist anthropological research on work, science, and/or technology, including biomedicine.

As one review said “The expressiveness of Amrute’s prose allows what are admittedly complex ideas to become engaging and accessible. This, combined with the strength of her description and the evident timeliness of her subject matter, make Encoding Race, Encoding Class a remarkably flexible text for teaching.”

Please join us in congratulating Professor Amrute. She will be honored at the AAA Annual Meeting in Washington DC on Dec. 1st, 2017.
