Posted by: Kinsey Brooke
Each year, the AFS Committee on Cultural Diversity, Chicana/Chicano Section, and Folklore Latino, Latinoamericano, y Caribeño Section join with the AFS Executive Board to give this prize of $200, which recognizes excellence in integrating scholarship and engagement with the people and communities one studies, or in teaching and encouraging scholars and practitioners to work in their own cultures or communities.

The Paredes Prize recognizes his contributions to the field and to the Society, gives respect to his memory, and recognizes exemplary achievements that build upon his cross-disciplinary, socially engaged legacy. The prize may be awarded for many forms of accomplishment, including products such as a book, article, software package, or exhibit; or on the basis of the overall impact of engaged teaching and scholarship; or fostering work in one’s own community or culture.

To submit:

  • Include the name of a Nominee;
  • Title/form of published work being recognized;
  • Letter of support (1 page/cover-letter style or email);
  • Please select works/projects from 2018-Present.


These submissions will be reviewed by a section committee chaired by section co-conveners.

Please email nominations by Monday, August 17, 2020 to:


Dr. Brenci Patiño, and/or Mariana Esquivel, .
