Glenda Laws Student Paper Competition
This award is named in memory of feminist geographer Glenda Laws (1959-1996), who, among many other things, was a fabulous mentor to her undergraduate and graduate students. Up to two prizes will be awarded, and both undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to participate.
Single-authored or co-authored student papers must derive from and contribute to feminist research in geography. Papers presented at a regional or national geography meeting since the previous annual meeting are eligible for consideration. Papers written for course work during this period will also be considered. Theses, dissertations, published papers, and papers co-authored with a faculty member are not eligible for this competition. Any work submitted to the past competition is not eligible for the current competition.
Papers should be double-spaced, 12-point font, and not more than 15 pages in length, not including references. There should be a title page with the student’s name, institution, level of study (B.A./B.S., M.A./M.S., Ph.D.), and when and where the paper was/will be presented or the course title, term and year for which the paper was written, and a 200 word abstract. Submissions should be emailed to email@example.com.
Rickie Sanders Junior Faculty Award Competition: In recognition of Intersectional-Anti-Racist Feminist Geographies
This award is named in honor of Rickie Sanders, Professor Emeritus of Geography and Urban Studies at Temple University in Philadelphia. Sanders is the first African American woman in the U.S. to be awarded the Ph.D. in geography and to attain the rank of Full Professor. A previous recipient of the AAG’s Enhancing Diversity Award, Sanders has always been a strong voice among feminist geographers looking to diversify the discipline. Through her long career on urban landscapes, Sanders has consistently looked to make visible the whiteness and “Eurocentric bias [that] serves as a ribbon” running through geography and other disciplines while simultaneously challenging the whiteness of feminism (Sanders 1990; 1992; 2006).
Recipients of this award will be untenured/adjunct faculty members who have made outstanding intersectional and anti-racist contributions to geography and/or the public in scholarship, creative work, public literature, film, journalism etc. Such work will be at once explicitly feminist, anti-racist and anti-colonial in substance and spirit. Nominations and self-nominations are welcome. Previous nominations and honorable mentions are also encouraged to reapply. Submissions will comprise the candidate’s CV along with a nomination statement (no more than two single-spaced pages) outlining the appropriateness of the candidate’s “work” as the basis for the award and maximum one letter of support. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
