This year's Teaching Excellence Award goes to tenure track assistant professors Gregory Eady and Emily Flore St. Denny.

"Both Gregory and Emily have provided high-quality teaching during difficult circumstances provided by the pandemic," says Anders Berg-Sørensen, Deputy Head of Department and Head of Studies.

Employed in a difficult time

Gregory Eady was hired just before the pandemic, while Emily Flore St. Denny was hired during the corona shutdown.

"Nevertheless, they both managed to teach a number of courses at master's level, which have received very positive reviews from a large number of students," emphasizes Anders Berg-Sørensen.

Gregory Eady researches and teaches, among other things, social media data and social media analysis. He works currently as assistant professor and has a past as a postdoc at New York University's Center for Social Media and Politics.

Assistant professor Emily Flore St. Denny's field is primarily gender and politics. Earlier this year, she received the Georges Lavau Dissertation Award for her PhD thesis: "Explaining the emergence and gradual transformation of policy regimes: The case of contemporary French prostitution policy (1946-2016)".

Congratulations to both researchers!
