Association for the Study of Food and Society Student Award Submission Guidelines
Deadline for Annual Submission: February 1. Electronic submissions ONLY!
ASFS invites current undergraduates and graduates to submit a paper for
the William Whit (undergraduate) and Alex McIntosh (graduate) prizes,
respectively. These awards recognize students' contributions to the
field of food studies. There will be one award each for an undergraduate
student paper and a graduate student paper. ASFS welcomes submissions
on a wide range of issues relating to food, society and culture, and
from the diverse disciplinary and trans-disciplinary fields that ASFS
encompasses. The author of each award-winning paper will receive:
* payment of annual membership and conference fees to be applied to
the following year if student is not attending in the current year
* a free banquet ticket for the coming year's annual meeting or the
following year's if a ticket has already been purchased or the student
is not attending the conference in the current year; and * the
opportunity to present prize-winning papers at an ASFS/AFHVS conference.
Winners who wish to present the year they receive their award must have
submitted a conference abstract in that same year.
