Dwight Conquergood Award – Applications Open

In Funding, News from PSi by Caroline Wake

Dear PSi Members,

Applications are now open for the Dwight Conquergood Award.

Who can apply: The Dwight Conquergood Award will be given to an artist, an activist or an emerging academic conducting research or working on projects with disenfranchised communities. The award will be open to Graduate Students and Early Career Researchers (up to three years since PhD) as well as to practitioners and community members who might be working outside of educational or institutional structures. Only applicants who have already had their proposal for a presentation accepted by the organisers of the current PSi Conference are eligible to receive the award.

How to apply: Application for the DCA consists of a one-page CV and a brief accompanying letter outlining your reasons for application and suitability for the award and the contact details of two referees. The application should include a reflection on how the work relates to the spirit of Dwight Conquergood’s work, for example by focusing on marginalised groups or challenging the boundaries between scholarly work and a wider sense of ethnography.

When to apply: Applications will be due on Wednesday, 12 April 2017. Late applications cannot be considered.

If you have any questions, please contact Caroline Wake (Awards Officer) via email c.wake@unsw.edu.au

Best wishes,

Caroline Wake
