The Sharon Stephens Prize is awarded biennially for a junior scholar’s first book. The prize goes to a work that speaks to contemporary social issues with relevance beyond the discipline and beyond the academy.
Ethnographies and critical works in contemporary theory – single-authored or multi-authored but not edited collections – are eligible. The book should be a first monograph by a junior scholar, have been published in the last two years, and may not have been previously submitted for this prize.
The jury for the prize is chaired by an AES councilor, with two or three other scholars as jury members.
Letters of nomination must come from scholars; self-nominations and nominations from presses are not invited.
Announcements regarding the deadlines and other specifics will be posted on this website, and other email based and social media platforms.
