The Committee on Gender and Sexuality Studies calls for submissions to the seventh annual Gloria E. Anzaldúa Award for Independent Scholars, Contingent, or Community College Faculty. 

Hosted by the American Studies Association, this award honors Anzaldúa’s outstanding career as an independent scholar and her labor as a contingent faculty member, along with her groundbreaking contributions to feminist, women of color, and queer theory.  The award includes a lifetime membership in the ASA, a lifetime electronic subscription to American Quarterly, and $500. Applicants must work in American studies or a related field and work as independent scholars and/or as faculty at community colleges or in a contingent capacity (i.e., as part-time or full-time non-ladder-rank or non-tenure-track instructors, adjuncts, or lecturers). Graduate students are ineligible. The winner will be announced at the Gender and Sexuality Studies brunch during the annual meeting.
