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.
