Gender and Jewish Studies: AJS Women's Caucus Prizes and Grants
If you are working on a project related to gender and Jewish Studies, please see below for AJS Women’s Caucus grants and prizes!
AJS Women’s Caucus Prize for Innovative Scholarship in Gender and Jewish Studies
What is the next step for Jewish feminist and gender studies? In what ways can recent theoretical trends in feminist, gender, queer, and trans-theory impact the various disciplines within Jewish studies?In recognition of the importance of these questions, the AJS Women's Caucus invites submissions for its Prize for Innovative Scholarship in Gender and Jewish Studies. The prize will be given in recognition of a paper presented at the 2012 AJS annual meeting within any discipline of Jewish studies that opens up new areas of inquiry or advances Jewish feminist or gender studies. The prize carries a cash award of $500. To be considered, papers must have been prepared especially for presentation at the 2012 AJS annual meeting.Papers should be submitted electronically in publishable form (with full citations and bibliography) by APRIL 29, 2013.
Submissions should be sent to the Women’s Caucus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cashmere Subvention Grant in Jewish Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies
The AJS Women’s Caucus announces a grant of $1000 to support scholarly publication in the area of Jewish Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies. Book proposals to be considered for the grant must make a clear argument for the ways in which the work represents a contribution to any of these fields and a subfield of Jewish Studies. Grant is open to scholars at all stages of their careers. While a contract for publication is not required at the time of application, funds can only be disbursed once a contract with a publisher is executed. In the hope that the subvention grant might help a scholar to secure a contract, the expectation is that the contract will be in hand within 12 months of receiving the award. To apply, send book proposal, sample chapter, and CV to email@example.com, by April 29, 2013.
2013 AJS Women’s Caucus Travel Grant
The AJS Women's Caucus awards travel grants to graduate students and independent scholars whose papers contribute to the study of women, feminism, and gender in Jewish studies and have been accepted for presentation at the 2013 conference. Graduate students in all areas of Jewish studies who have not previously received a Women's Caucus Travel Grant are encouraged to apply. The travel grants can be applied towards any conference-related costs (hotel, conference registration, childcare costs, etc.). The application consists of: the AJS abstract/paper proposal; a paragraph explicitly stating how the paper broadens the current understanding of Jews and gender; a copy of the letter of acceptance from the AJS; a CV; and a proposed budget that includes other potential sources of financial support.Application documents should be electronically submitted as email attachments by September 13, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Travel Grant Committee will notify applicants prior to the conference. Winners will also be announced at the Women's Caucus Breakfast, to which they are invited at no cost, and should therefore plan to attend.
