FWSA Book Prize 2009
The Feminist and Women’s Studies Association (UK & Ireland) is delighted to
announce the inaugural FWSA Book Prize, a competition for books published in
the fields of feminist, women’s and gender studies in 2008.
The FWSA Book Prize is intended to recognise scholarship which is
innovative, interdisciplinary and grounded in feminist theory and practice.
The 2009 competition is open to scholars who were employed at, formally
associated with, or a postgraduate student at a British or Irish university
or research organisation between Jan 1st 2007 and Dec 31st 2008. Nominated
books must be monographs or textbooks and published in English. We welcome
single or jointly authored contributions but edited collections are not
eligible. Submitted books do not have to have a UK publisher.
The deadline for nominations is 31st January 2009.
Books may be self-nominated by authors or you can nominate a book that
inspired you. All entries will be judged by an external interdisciplinary
panel of feminist, women’s and gender studies scholars. The winner and
short-listed entries will be announced in June 2009 and will be featured in
the FWSA newsletter. The winner will be awarded a prize of £500.
