ANN: Anna P. Sokolina named first Milka Bliznakov Scholar

SHERA is pleased to announced that member and SHERA-SAH Liaison Anna P. Sokolina will be the first Milka Bliznakov Scholar

In June 2016, the Milka Bliznakov Research Prize Jury at the International Archive of Women in Architecture IAWA, facilitated at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, created a new designation — the Milka Bliznakov Scholar – that includes a stipend to cover a two-year period. The first scholarly designation is awarded to Dr. Anna P. Sokolina in recognition and support of her research proposal “Life to Architecture: Milka Bliznakov Academic Papers and Records of Russian Women Architects at the IAWA.” The Jury concluded that the proposed research project outlines an important and timely initiative, and Anna P. Sokolina is in a unique position to realize this effort to situate Professor Emerita Milka Bliznakov’s scholarly contribution.
