The Ideology Behind Andrea Long Chu’s Controversial Pulitzer

“Andrea Long Chu, a male who identifies as a transgender woman, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for criticism for ‘book reviews that scrutinize authors as well as their works, using multiple cultural lenses to explore some of society’s most fraught topics.’

Chu’s work, however, is decidedly more controversial than the Pulitzer committee at Columbia University’s brief statement would lead the average reader to believe. Our Sunday Visitor reached out to Professor Angela Franks, a Catholic expert on contemporary issues on gender and identity to discuss the ideological background of the controversial award.”
