***The deadline for the Annual Student Essay Prize has been extended to 27th January 2014***
The FWSA is delighted to announce that we are now accepting submissions for our 10th anniversary student essay competition. To encourage a new generation of feminist scholars, the FWSA sponsors an annual student essay competition for work which is innovative, interdisciplinary and grounded in feminist theory and practice. The top seven entries will be judged by our anniversary judging panel and will be published in the Journal of International Women’s Studies. In addition, the winner will receive a year’s free FWSA membership and a publisher’s prize.
The theme for the competition is ‘New Directions in Feminist Studies- Activisms, Emotions, Intersectionality’.
Our anniversary judging panel:
Professor Mary Evans
Professor Christina Hughes
University of Warwick
Professor Diana Negra
University College Dublin
Professor Imelda Whelehan
University of Tasmania
Students at any stage of their studies at a British or Irish university are encouraged to submit work that has not been previously published and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Essays can be on this general theme or can focus on a sub-theme e.g. Activisms. Entries should be 7,000 words (including footnotes and bibliography), must be submitted electronically and including a completed competition coversheet. The deadline for this year’s competition is 27th January 2014. The winning entries will be announced in Summer 2014.
