In memory of Rhonda Williams, associate editor of Feminist Economics from 1994 to 1998, the International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE) has established a prize to help scholars from underrepresented groups in IAFFE, whose work reflects Rhonda Williams's legacy of scholarship and activism, attend the annual IAFFE conference and present a paper.
The prize is oriented towards junior untenured scholars and activists.
Amount: $500 to be awarded at the IAFFE conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina, July 22-24, 2010.
Criteria: The recipient's work in activism, advocacy, or scholarship should demonstrate a commitment to one or more of the following issues:
* Inequalities based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or nationality.
* Interrelationships among racism, sexism, homophobia, and classism.
* Connections between scholarship and activism.
Special consideration will be given to applicants from groups not well represented in IAFFE and those with limited access to travel funds from their home institutions or international funders.
The recipient of the prize must present at the IAFFE conference and submit the manuscript to Feminist Economics within a reasonable period after the conference. The paper will undergo an expedited review process, but publication is not guaranteed.
Applications should be sent to Marlene Kim, Chair, Rhonda Williams Prize, at Marlene.Kim@umb.edu and should include:
(1) A cover letter/email that includes a statement of (a) the connection between the applicant's experience and the Rhonda Williams legacy as described in the criteria above; and (b) how the applicant would bring diversity to IAFFE and how the applicant would like to be engaged with
IAFFE in the future.
(2) A curriculum vitae or resume,
(3) A draft of a full paper (not an abstract or outline) for the 2010 IAFFE conference, scheduled for July 22-24, 2010 in Buenos Aires."
Please send all files in Microsoft Word or in PDF Acrobat format. Please be sure that all materials are sent. Applicants who omit any of the three items listed above may not be considered for the prize.
For applicants who haven’t yet registered for the annual conference because they need funding, the prize winner will be allowed to register for the annual conference and will be included in the conference program after being notified of the prize.
If you are not an IAFFE member for 2010, please send in your membership application prior to submission of your prize application.
