AAG sexuality and space student paper competition 2012

Open to geographers of all stripes! Let me know if you have any questions about the competition.

The Sexuality and Space Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers is pleased to invite submissions for the 2012 Sexuality and Space Student Paper Competition. Winners will be notified prior to the 2012 Annual Meeting of the AAG in New York City, and will be honoured at the Awards Banquet. Submission deadline is Friday, February 10, 2012.

Any student currently enrolled in an undergraduate, masters or doctoral degree program in Geography or a related discipline may submit a paper written in the past year (since 1 March 2011). Papers are welcome from students at institutions in or outside of the United States. Students do not necessarily have to be presenting a paper at this year’s annual meeting of the Association of American Geographers to be eligible for an award.

We are seeking excellent quality student papers that advance the study of sexuality and space. Papers should be 4000-6000 words in length (including explanatory footnotes/endnotes, but excluding references), with an additional 100-200 word abstract. Figures and images should be included as separate pages rather than embedded within the text. Papers should be properly referenced, although students may choose the citation method they think appropriate. Papers should be in English.

Submission Procedure:
Submissions should be made electronically. Please email Ju Hui Judy Han (judy.han@geog.ubc.ca) with the paper attached as a PDF, Microsoft Word, or other standard word processing program file. All submissions will be acknowledged by email; if you do not receive an acknowledgement within 48 hours, please try sending again. Please be sure to include your name, postal address, telephone, and email address on the front cover of your paper, so that we can contact you if necessary.

Papers must be received by February 10, 2012 to be considered.
