The Feminist and Women’s Studies Association is now accepting submissions for their 2016 Student Essay Competition.
To encourage a new generation of feminist scholars, the FWSA sponsors an annual student essay competition for work which is innovative, interdisciplinary and grounded in feminist theory and practice. The top seven entries will be judged by their judging panel and will be published in the Journal of International Women’s Studies. In addition, the winner will receive a year’s free FWSA membership and a publisher’s prize.
Students at any stage of their studies at a British or Irish university are encouraged to submit work that has not been previously published and is not currently under consideration for publication, or for competitions which result in publication elsewhere. Essays should be 6,000 – 7,000 words (including footnotes and bibliography), must be submitted electronically and including a completed competition coversheet. Please use your surname as the file name (e.g. ‘ROY’). Please note that entries without this coversheet will not be considered.
The deadline for this year’s competition is Monday 2nd May 2016.
