Call for Papers: Graduate Student Paper Prize: Journal of Middle East Women's Studies 2014


Abstract Deadline: May 1, 2014

The Journal of Middle East Women's Studies (JMEWS) Graduate Student Paper Prize has been established by the Association for Middle East Women's Studies (AMEWS) to recognize and promote excellence in the fields of Middle East women's or gender studies, broadly defined, and to encourage academic engagement and excellence in these fields among students at the graduate level. The prize will be awarded to the individual whose work is judged to provide the most significant and potentially influential contribution to Middle East women's or gender studies. Papers of exceptional courage and potential impact beyond the field will be given special consideration.

The JMEWS Graduate Student Paper Prize is offered annually to a graduate student who has solo-authored a paper in these fields. The competition is open only to papers written in English. Papers must be between 7,000 - 10,000 words, including a 150-word abstract and a reference list. Papers must be submitted as a Word document or pdf file. Submissions should include a title page that lists the author's name, institution, and program of study and the manuscript's title.

The results of the 2014 JMEWS Graduate Student Paper Prize will be announced at the AMEWS business meeting at the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) Annual Meeting in 2014. The winner will receive a $500 cash award and a plaque. The winner will also be invited to submit the paper for publication in JMEWS.

Submissions for the 2014 prize must be submitted via e-mail to NO LATER THAN MAY 1, 2014.

The JMEWS Graduate Student Paper Prize is sponsored by Yale University's Council on Middle East Studies.
