Nominations for the 2019 CALACS Article Prize for Emerging Scholars

In order to recognize and encourage talented junior scholars in the field of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS) invites submissions for the second annual article prize for emerging scholars.

The 2019 prize will be awarded during the 2020 CALACS meeting in Ottawa.  Judging will be upon a refereed journal article published in 2019.  Co-authored papers are acceptable, but the nominee must be the lead author.  We invite colleagues to nominate candidates for the award and authors are also invited to nominate one of their own articles.

Nominees must be current members of CALACS who are untenured and/or within five years of having obtained a Ph.D. Graduate students are also eligible. Questions regarding eligibility should be directed to the chair of the committee, Dr. Dolores Figueroa (figueroa.lola(at)gmail.com). Nominated articles should be sent, together with a brief letter of nomination that identifies the key contributions and qualities of the nominated work, through the CALACS website by January 15, 2020.
