FWSA is delighted to announce that the 2019 Student Essay Competition has now been launched! 

(Deadline May 10th)

To encourage a new generation of feminist scholars, the FWSA sponsors an annual student essay competition for work which is innovative, interdisciplinary and grounded in feminist theory and practice. The top seven entries will be judged by our judging panel and will be published in the Journal of International Women’s Studies. In addition, the winner will receive a year’s free FWSA membership.

Student’s at any stage of their studies at a British or Irish university are encouraged to submit work that has not been previously published and is not currently under consideration for publication, or for competitions which result in publication, elsewhere. Essays should be 6,000-7,000 words (including footnotes and bibliography), must be submitted electronically, include a completed competition coversheet and adhere to the submission instructions (see below). Please head over to the FWSA student essay competition page here for detailed information on how to submit.
