American Sociological Association: Section on Body and Embodiment Awards
Graduate Student Paper
In line with the section’s mission statement, nominations for this competition include scholarly papers (research based or theoretical) pertaining to any aspect of Body/Embodiment for any graduate student within the last year. For the graduate student best paper award, only submissions of work completed/published where all authors are graduate students within the last year will be accepted. We seek to support graduate students’ original and best work-- unpublished works or articles published in any journal, or chapters published in recent books. Self-nominations are welcome. To be considered for this competition, all nominees (including co-authors) must be dues-paying graduate student members of the section (which requires ASA membership) for the year 2013. Only scholarly essays completed/published between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012 will be considered for awards made in August 2012. Graduate Student Best Paper nominations are due May 11, 2013. Late submissions will not be accepted (no exceptions). Only electronic submissions are accepted and should include a PDF copy of the article, author’s name, institutional affiliation and address, telephone number, and email address.
