The Feminist and Women’s Studies Association (UK & Ireland) is delighted to announce the FWSA Book Prize 2017, a competition for books published in fields of feminist, gender and women’s studies.
The FWSA Book Prize is intended to recognise scholarship which is innovative, interdisciplinary and grounded in feminist theory and practice. The 2017 competition is open to scholars who were employed, postgraduate students at, or associated with a British or Irish university or research organisation between 1st January 2014 and 31st December 2016. The FWSA welcomes book prize nominations from authors at all stages of their careers, in particular, early career researchers. Nominated books must be monographs or textbooks, and published in English. We welcome single or jointly authored contributions. Edited collections and reprints of earlier editions are not eligible. Books must be first published between 1st January 2016 and 31st December 2016; they do not have to have a UK publisher.
The deadline for nominations is 10th February 2017.
Books may be nominated by authors or publishers, or you can nominate a book that
inspired you. All entries will be judged by an external interdisciplinary panel of feminist, gender and women’s studies scholars. The winner will be featured on the FWSA website, and in the FWSA newsletter. The winner will also be awarded a prize of £500.
