Raewyn Connell Prize

About Raewyn Connell
Raewyn Connell
Taken from Raewyn Connell's website: Raewyn comes from a family linking the Melbourne professional bourgeoisie with rural settlers. Her Irish, Scots and Welsh ancestors were part of the nineteenth-century British colonization of Aboriginal lands in south-eastern Australia. Born in 1944, Raewyn grew up during the Cold War, mainly in Sydney, where she went to Dee Why Public School, then Manly and North Sydney High Schools. Raewyn took a BA Hons degree at University of Melbourne and a PhD at the University of Sydney. She was active in the student movement and New Left of the 1960s, and then became a university teacher and researcher.
