This award will provide travel reimbursement of $500 to an advanced graduate student who is a member of the ASA and plans to attend the 2015 convention in order to present a paper related to critical ethnic and/or indigenous studies. Graduate students who have no support for convention attendance and are members of an under-represented group are particularly encouraged to apply.
The American Studies Association’s Committee on Critical Ethnic Studies calls for submissions for the 2015 Comparative Ethnic Studies Prize, awarded to a participant in the annual meeting of the American Studies Association. Any paper given at the meeting is eligible for consideration, provided that it does not exceed 15 pages, including the notes. The paper should be a work-in-progress. The author of the winning paper will receive a $500 award at the annual meeting to be held October 8-11 in Toronto, Canada.
Relevant submissions will contrast or connect the process of race-making or the experiences of ethnic communities with similar processes or experiences inside or outside the United States. All essays must be global and/or comparative, focusing on the power of race/ethnicity to shape the lives of diverse groups of people.
