About Nancy
Nancy C.M. Hartsock (1943-2015) was a major contributor to the field of feminist
theory. She joined the departments of Political Science and Women Studies (now
Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies) at the University of Washington in 1984. Her
magnum opus, Money, Sex, and Power: Toward a Feminist Historical Materialism
(1983), offered a significant contribution to the theorization of women’s sex- and gender
specific labor as a resource for the development of a “feminist standpoint.” Nancy’s
essays on feminist standpoint theory are among the most influential and widely-cited pieces
of scholarship in feminist and political theory. Her work has been adopted, extended and
revised, as well as criticized, by feminist scholars, and continues to be a vital touchstone
for feminist inquiry.

On the occasion of her retirement in 2009, Nancy’s commitments to graduate
teaching and multidisciplinary feminist research were honored in the decision to create a
graduate student paper prize in her name. It was Nancy’s stipulation that graduate
students from all departments and schools in the College of Arts and Sciences would be
eligible to apply for this prize, which recognizes the creative achievements of emerging
scholars whose contributions to feminist theory are excellent and noteworthy.
Nancy’s work in feminist theory was inspired by a deep commitment to justice.
In addition to scholarly work in the field of feminist theory, Nancy was interested in
related efforts to address issues of injustice, including: race and ethnicity studies,
sexuality studies, disability studies, animal studies, and global disparities in life-chances.
