The American Studies Association’s Critical Ethnic Studies Committee calls for submissions for the 2021 Critical Ethnic Studies Prize, awarded to a participant in the annual meeting of the American Studies Association. Any paper given at the meeting - either in-person or virtually - 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, to be announced in mid-November.
Relevant submissions will contrast or connect the process of race-making or the experiences of racialized communities with similar processes or experiences inside or outside the United States. All essays must focus on the power of race/ethnicity to shape the lives of diverse groups of people.
Papers should be submitted electronically by Tuesday, October 1 to Hiʻilei Hobart, chair of the committee. Late submissions will not be accepted.
Community announcements and events are services that are offered by the ASA to support the organizing efforts of critical constituency groups. They do not reflect the decisions or actions of the association’s governance bodies, the National Council or Executive Committee. Questions should be directed to the committee, caucus, or chapter that has authored and posted this notice.
