In 2001, the Southern American Studies Association's Executive Committee established Critoph Award for the best graduate student paper presented at SASA’s biennial conference. Named in memory of Professor Gerald “Jerry” Critoph of Stetson University, a former long-term member of SASA’s Executive Committee, this award includes a certificate and a check for $250, as well as recognition at the next SASA meeting and, of course, on the recipient’s C.V.
The deadline for this year's biennial conference is March 2, 2017. Submissions should be emailed to: SASAcritophprize@gmail.com.
