The Women’s Committee calls for submissions to the fourth annual Gloria E. Anzaldua Award for Independent Scholars, Contingent or Community College Faculty. Hosted by the American Studies Association, this award honors Anzaldua’s outstanding career as an independent scholar and her labor as contingent faculty, along with her groundbreaking contributions to scholarship on women of color and to queer theory. The award includes a lifetime membership in the ASA, a lifetime electronic subscription to American Quarterly, and $500. Applicants must work in American studies or a related field and work as independent scholars and/or as faculty at community colleges or in a contingent capacity (i.e., as part-time or full-time non-ladder-rank or non-tenure-track instructors, adjuncts, or lecturers). Graduate students are ineligible. The winner will be announced at the Women’s Breakfast during the annual meeting of the association to be held November 21-24, 2013, Washington, DC.
To apply, applicants should submit an unpublished paper that does not exceed 25 pages, including endnotes and bibliography, and a two-page vita. Relevant submissions will demonstrate an affinity with Anzaldua’s oeuvre, vision, or political commitments and should address connections among some or all of the following categories: race, ethnicity, citizenship, class, gender, sexuality, and dis/ability. Eligible participants in the ASA annual meeting are encouraged to apply. Papers and CVs must be submitted electronically by October 1, 2013, to the committee chair, Deborah E.
