The deadline for the NWSA-University of Illinois Press First Book Prize is June 1!
The National Women’s Studies Association and the University of Illinois Press are pleased to announce a competition for the best dissertation or first book manuscript by a single author in the field of women’s and gender studies. Applicants must be National Women’s Studies Association members. We welcome nonfiction manuscripts that exemplify cutting-edge intersectional feminist scholarship, whether the area of focus is historical or contemporary. The competition is open to scholars from all disciplinary backgrounds, but we especially encourage work that speaks effectively across disciplines, and projects that offer new perspectives on concerns central to the field of women’s and gender studies.
NWSA and the University of Illinois Press are pleased to offer a $1,000 advance to the winner. Visit our page for the prize for more information: http://www.press.uillinois.edu/books/NWSAPrize.html.
