Award Winning Articles

The author of an article in NCFR's Journal of Family Theory & Review (JFTR) will receive an award for the article from the Groves Conference on Marriage and Family.

Deborah A. Widiss, J.D., will receive the Groves Conference's Feldman Award for her article, "Legal recognition of same-sex relationships: New possibilities for research on the role of marriage law in household labor allocation," which was published in the March 2016 issue of JFTR.

The award will be given at the 2016 Groves Conference, Aug. 4-7 in Denver Colorado.

The Groves Feldman Award, named for family policy pioneers Margaret and Harold Feldman, is given for a scholarly publication that has made a significant social policy contribution in the last 5 years related to ethnicity and/or gender in families.

Two articles published in the Journal of Family Theory & Review have received Anselm Strauss Awards for Family Qualitative Research from the Qualitative Family Research Network (QFRN). Both articles appeared in JFTR’s Special Issue on Innovative Methodologies in Family Scholarship, Volume 7, issue 4, published in December 2015 and co-edited by Libby Balter Blume and Cheryl Buehler.
