Call for Applications: 2024 Sylvia Forman Prize

June 1 @ 11:59 pm

Association for Feminist Anthropology is pleased to invite graduate and undergraduate students to submit essays in feminist anthropology for the Sylvia Forman Student Paper Prize competition, named for the late Sylvia Helen Forman, one of the founders of AFA, whose dedication to both her students and feminist principles contributed to the growth of feminist anthropology. We encourage essays in all four subfields of anthropology. Essays may be based on research on a wide variety of topics including (but not limited to) feminist analysis of women’s work, education, reproduction, sexuality, religion, and expressive culture, language, family and kin relations, economic development, gender and material culture, gender and biology, women and development, globalization, and intersectionalities of gender, race, sexuality, and class. The Prize carries an award of $250 to the undergraduate winner and $500 to the graduate winner. The AFA is committed to offering mentoring for winners interested in receiving feedback on their submissions.
