United States, New York, New York - 08-14-2019 (PRDistribution.com) — Dr. Mary Gallant, Associate Professor of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Rowan University, was just recently selected as Top Associate Professor of the Year in Sociology for 2019 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the industry.
Dr. Gallant earned her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Minnesota. The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated “Choosing Dr. Gallant for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make. She is brilliant at what she does and contributed so much of her wisdom and passion to educate professionals all over the globe. She is humble, gracious and we felt she would make an amazing asset to our organization. We are looking forward to meeting her at the gala and know we will be seeing more amazing things from this incredible woman.”
Some of Dr. Gallant’s most important academic achievements are those associated with her research on the Holocaust. In 1994, Dr. Gallant presented a paper at the World Conference of Holocaust Scholars and Survivors, Errinerung und die Zukunft II, held in Berlin, GDR. Her paper was titled, “Children and Adolescents in the Holocaust: Effects of Trauma.” Thousands of people from all over the world attended the colloquium that took place in Germany, London and Oxford. She also has a book chapter on rescue that grew out of a separate presentation she gave at this World Conference that is now published in a three-volume work out of Palgrave titled, Remembering for the Future; The Holocaust in an Age of Genocide, edited by John K. Roth and Elisabeth Maxwell. Her most recent chapter on the Holocaust is on the rescue of ten thousand Jewish children brought from Germany and its territories to the United Kingdom just before WWII. The book chapter is titled, “The Kindertransport: Gender and the Rescue of Jewish Children” in Different Horrors, Same Hell; Gender and the Holocaust (2013), edited and introduced by Myrna Goldenberg and Amy H. Shapiro, University of Washington Press. Dr. Gallant’s first book, Coming of Age in the Holocaust: The Last Survivors Remember (2002), is based on grants-funded, primary research. Using data from in-depth interviews with Holocaust survivors, she observed that there were certain symbolic processes critical to surviving destruction of self and identity during persecution and oppression that survivors engaged right at the start of the onslaught as well as all the way through. Dr. Gallant is currently continuing research and publishing while working on a third book, this time on informal social processes shaping medical students during training as they contend with stress and uncertainty.
