Graduate Student Paper Award

Lambda's new award is designed to encourage and reward scholarship by pre-Ph.D. scholars on issues related to the LCC’s mission, including, but not limited to: homosocial and homoerotic relationships and environments, ancient sexuality and gender roles, representations of the gendered body, and queer theory.

We ask for nominations of oral papers presented by a pre-Ph.D. scholar at a
conference (including, but not limited to the AIA/SCS and CAMWS) from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 (ca. 20 minutes in length as delivered). To nominate a paper, e-mail LCC co-chair Deborah Kamen <dkamen@uw.edu> with the presenter’s name and email address and the title of the paper. Self-nominations are encouraged; information related to nominations is confidential. Membership in the Caucus is not required to be eligible for these awards.

Nominations accepted until October 31, 2016. The winner will be announced at the opening night reception of the 2017 AIA/SCS meetings in Toronto.
