FWSA Student Essay Competition

(Monday 27th May 2019)

We are pleased to announce the call for papers has been extended.

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 an expert 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.

Students at any stage of their studies at a British or Irish university are encouraged to submit work that has not been previously published, is not currently under review for publication, or is not currently under consideration for competitions which result in publication. Essays should be 6,000-7,000 words (including abstract, footnotes, and bibliography), must be submitted electronically, include a completed competition coversheet, and adhere to the submission instructions. More detailed information on how to submit an entire can be found on the competition page.
