DESCRIPTION OF AWARD
The Center for the Study of Women and Institute for American Cultures established the joint Research Excellence Award for Associate Professors in January 2017. This Award consists of a monograph manuscript (or equivalent) workshop organized by CSW-IAC to promote continuing excellence in scholarship by UCLA professors at the associate level addressing questions important to the fields of critical race and postcolonial studies and/or gender, sexuality, and ethnic studies.
Candidates for the award must be nominated by a fellow faculty member (inside or outside of UCLA) committed to co-organizing the workshop alongside the CSW-IAC selection committee and staff.
STRUCTURE OF WORKSHOPS
Each workshop will feature a distinguished outside reader from the awardee’s field who will prepare detailed written reports in preparation for the workshop discussion. Also invited will be a select group of local colleagues and intellectual interlocutors who will also have had an opportunity to read the manuscript or portions thereof. These workshops will offer awardees an extended and detailed discussion of his or her manuscript and a pragmatic plan of action for revisions.
