2023 Feminist Formations and NWSA Paper Award (NWSA Membership is required)

The Feminist Formations - NWSA Scholarly and Creative Work Competition is now closed. Look out for updates on the 2024 award!

The Feminist Formations - National Women’s Studies Association annual competition selects one winner whose work is be published in Feminist Formations and who will also receive a cash award of $500. The competition is open to scholars at all ranks, including independent scholars and artists. Multiple modes of knowledge production will be considered, including but not limited to traditional scholarly articles, essays, poetry, and visual imagery. We are particularly interested in work that contributes to Black, Indigenous, and women of color feminisms; trans feminist studies; critical disability studies; and transnational feminisms. We also seek work that contributes to the journal’s mission to support “robust interdisciplinary, intersectional, and transnational feminist scholarship that can inspire incisive and politically meaningful analyses and action.”>

Applicants must be current NWSA members. We cannot consider submissions that have been previously published or are currently being reviewed by other journals.

Feminist Formations is housed in the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Oregon State University, and published three times a year by the John Hopkins University Press. For more information, visit www.feministformations.org
