Sara Rushing, a political science professor at Montana State University, won the Contemporary Political Theory journal's annual prize.

Rushing won the honor for her article, "Preparing for Politics: Judith Butler's Ethical Dispositions." The article was published in the August edition of the journal, which is based in the United Kingdom.

Rushing will receive £500 for the article, which the judges describe as "elegantly systematic, insightful and eloquently argued." The article is part of a book project that Rushing is writing that looks at the quality of humility in American politics.

Rushing is a specialist in contemporary political theory and has a background in feminist identity politics. Rushing has taught at MSU since 2008. She is also the outgoing chairwoman of the MSU Women's Faculty Caucus.
