About the Kenneth R. Haslam, MD Relationship Diversity Research Award

The annual Kenneth R. Haslam, MD Relationship Diversity Research Award was established in 2021 to support the work of Kinsey Institute and affiliated researchers conducting research on non-monogamy, alternative sexualities, and intersections of diverse relationships and sexuality.

This award is made possible through an endowed fund at the Kinsey Institute established through the generosity of Dr. Kenneth Haslam, an academic anesthesiologist, and long-time friend and supporter of the Kinsey Institute. Dr. Haslam continues to work with Liana Zhou, Director of the Kinsey Institute Library and Special Collections, to develop the Kenneth R. Haslam, MD Polyamory Collection, an important polyamory collection and archive at the Kinsey Institute which includes the work of Dr. Haslam and many other poly-activists, with materials dating back to the 1970s.

The award winner is chosen by Kinsey Institute faculty and invited to deliver a public lecture at Indiana University, Bloomington.
