Women’s Studies Caucus Award, 2023

The Women’s Studies Caucus Award for a paper at the annual AAIS conference is open to ABD doctoral students and scholars who are not on the tenure track. Those wishing to apply should submit the paper that they are scheduled to present on any aspect of women and gender studies. The paper need not be part of any WSC-sponsored panels, but applicants should be members of the caucus in order to be eligible. The award comes with a $300 cash prize.

Please send your complete paper (10 pages maximum) to the WSC Secretary Anna Marra (anna.marra@unh.edu) by April 15, 2023 in PDF with your name and any other identifying information removed from the document itself. The officers will forward your anonymized paper to the prize jury. The winner will be announced at our annual WSC meeting.
