Women’s Caucus for the Modern Languages:  2019 Awards Submissions

The Women’s Caucus for the Modern Languages (WCML) is now accepting submissions for its annual awards.  The Caucus is gender-inclusive and welcomes feminist scholarship from all authors. Applicants must be members of WCML, but please note that there are no membership dues for graduate students and for those whose income is below $20,000 a year. 

The 2019 Florence Howe Award

Each year, the Florence Howe Award for feminist scholarship recognizes two outstanding essays by feminist scholars, one from the field of English and one from a foreign language. Each recipient receives $250 and is honored at an event hosted by the Women’s Caucus at the annual MLA meeting.

To be eligible for consideration, essays of no more than 10,000 words, written from a feminist perspective, must have been published in English between June 2018 and September 2019.

Please send submissions to Michelle Massé, President of the Women’s Caucus, at mmasse@lsu.edu

Please note that applicants must be members of the Women’s Caucus.

Deadline for submission: December 6, 2019.

The 2019 Annette Kolodny Award

The Annette Kolodny Award is presented annually to a graduate student member of the Women’s Caucus who is scheduled to give a presentation at the MLA. The recipient receives $400 and is honored at an event hosted by the Women’s Caucus at the annual MLA meeting.  This year’s award has a powerful resonance because it marks not only Annette’s contributions to feminist scholarship, but her death in September.  

To apply, please send your CV, the title and number of the MLA session at which you are scheduled to present, the abstract for your presentation, and the format (panel, roundtable, etc.)  to Michelle Massé, President of the Women’s Caucus, Louisiana State University, at mmasse@lsu.edu.  We will consider all submissions, but will give preference to longer presentations.  

Please note that applicants must be members of the Women’s Caucus.

Deadline for submission: December 6, 2019.
