The Rapoport Center currently administers two writing prizes: The Audre Rapoport Prize for Scholarship on Gender and Human Rights and The Zipporah B. Wiseman Prize for Scholarship on Law, Literature, and Justice. Read more about each prize on their respective pages.
Each year, the Rapoport Center awards the Audre Rapoport Prize for Scholarship on Gender and Human Rights to the winner of an interdisciplinary writing competition on international human rights and gender. The $1,000 prize is made possible by a donation from University of Texas linguistics professor Robert King. It honors the work of Audre Rapoport (1923-2016), who advocated for women in the United States and internationally, particularly on issues of reproductive health.
Friends, family, and colleagues of the late Zipporah Batshaw Wiseman are pleased to announce the Zipporah B. Wiseman Prize for Scholarship on Law, Literature, and Justice. The international and multidisciplinary writing prize, administered by the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at the University of Texas School of Law, will be offered annually in honor of Professor Wiseman’s important work at the intersection of law and literature.
