Dear Students, Colleagues and Members,
The FWSA is delighted to announce that we are now accepting submissions for our 2012 competition.
To encourage a new generation of feminist scholars, the FWSA sponsors an annual student essay competition for work which is innovative, interdisciplinary and grounded in feminist theory and practice. The top six entries will be published in the Journal of International Women’s Studies and the winner will, in addition, receive a year’s free FWSA membership. Students at any stage of their studies at a British or Irish university are encouraged to submit work which has not previously been published and is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere or under consideration under competitions elsewhere which result in *any* form of publication.
Entries should be 6,000 to 7,000 words (including footnotes, excluding bibliography) and must be submitted electronically, including a completed competition coversheet. The essay must be submitted as a single MS Word document attachment, including bibliography and cover sheet. Please use your surname as the file name (e.g. ‘ROY’). Please note that entries without this coversheet will not be considered.
The deadline for this year’s competition is 20th November 2012.
Please submit the essays electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org
