Dr. Norrander is a professor at the University of Arizona School for Government and Public Policy, where she teaches American politics, specializing in elections, public opinion, and political parties. Read more about why she was awarded below: 

"Barbara has published 10 books, 33 peer-reviewed articles, and 29 chapters in scholarly books.  She is known for her path breaking work on the consequential distinctions between men and women's opinions on politics, and her keen insight into the consequences of America's presidential primary system. Her work has been cited nearly 3000 times. Importantly, her nominees also talked with great enthusiasm about her mentorship, which they describe as "second to none." She has invested significant energy into both graduate students and women faculty at the University of Arizona. Finally, the awards committee was impressed by Barbara's strength in mentoring people both within and outside gender and politics, as well as her strength in scholarship and her efforts to translate her knowledge and insight in the local public sphere. They also noted her commitment to the MPSA as well as her years of service to the discipline." - Midwest Women's Caucus
