Friday, September 2, 2016
Posted by: Jesse A. Fivecoate
In recognition of the important contribution of young scholars to the field and as a symbolic gesture to stimulate their research and participation in the society, SIEF offers a young scholar prize for the best ethnological research published in between its conferences. The winner of the next prize will be presented with 500 Euros at the SIEF meeting in 2017 in Göttingen, Germany. She or he will also be invited to give a special prize lecture.
The prize is awarded for journal articles or book chapters based on original research and published in refereed publications in the three years preceding the next SIEF meeting. Thus the prize presented in 2017 will be awarded to a refereed article and chapter published in 2014, 2015, 2016. Works that are still in press will not be considered, but their authors are encouraged to submit them for the next prize once they are published.
For the purposes of the prize, young scholars are defined as scholars who completed their PhD degree 4 calendar years or less before the publication date. Scholars who are not members of SIEF are welcome to join the society before submitting.
Submissions (your article or book chapter and a short CV) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 1, 2016.
The best research will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to knowledge and overall scholarly quality. A committee from the board will read all submissions and select a winner.
If you are unsure whether you or your submission are eligible, or if you have any other queries, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
