After a two-year COVID-induced hiatus, the Sports Studies Caucus of the American Studies Association will award its third Graduate Student Paper Prize at the ASA’s 2022 meeting in New Orleans. All currently-enrolled graduate students presenting sports-related papers at the annual meeting are eligible to submit their papers for consideration. The Caucus created this prize in order to highlight excellent new work on sports by rising scholars in our field. The winning paper will make an original intervention in American Studies scholarship through the critical analysis of sports.


Submission guidelines:

Papers must be submitted via email to asaSportsPrize {at}, no later than 5 pm Central Time on Monday, October 17, 2022. Submissions should include a cover sheet with the author’s name, affiliation, and email address; the author’s name and all other identifying information should be excised from the main body of the paper. Submissions should be MS Word documents between 2000 and 3500 words, and should conform to a recognized citation style (e.g., Chicago, APA, MLA). The winner will announced in New Orleans, at the annual Business Meeting of the Sports Studies Caucus (please consult the program for the exact date, time, and location).
