Every two years the AES invites nominations for its bi-annual Sharon Stephens Prize, awarded for a junior scholar's first book. The prize ($1000) goes to a work that speaks to contemporary social issues with relevance beyond the discipline and beyond the academy. Ethnographies and critical works in contemporary theory--single-authored or multi-authored but not edited collections--are eligible. The next Sharon Stephens Prize will be awarded at the AES business meeting at the 2013 AAA annual meeting.
Nomination letters are required and must come from scholars; self-nominations and nominations from presses are not invited. Please send nominating letter and book by April 30, 2013 to each of the three Sharon Stephens Prize committee members (three copies total of both letter and book): Marisol de la Cadena, University of California, 328 Young Hall, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616-8522; Daniel Goldstein, Rutgers University, Ruth Adams Bldg. 303, 131 George St, New Brunswick, NJ 08901; Daromir Rudnyckyj, PAOR-University of Victoria, P.O. Box 3045 STN CSC, Victoria, BC V8W 3P4 Canada.
