From SSAWW VP for Development Kristin Jacobson:

I am seeking volunteers to read for SSAWW’s 2015 Awards:

  • Lifetime Achievement Award: 5 readers
  • Book Award: 3 readers
  • Edition Award: 3 readers

If you already volunteered to serve (I have two volunteers in my records), I have sent you an individual email for confirmation about your availability. If you volunteered to read but did not receive a separate email from me, please let me know.

Readers should represent SSAWW’s range of scholars and scholarship and be available to read submissions during a seven month period (between the closing date for the awards, 1 January 2015, and 1 August 2015). Awards will be announced at SSAWW’s 2015 conference. The initial call for the awards is pasted below.

Readers for SSAWW Awards (including the VP of Development) are not eligible to submit their own work for consideration of a 2015 award in which they are directly involved.

If you are interested in serving as a reader for one of the awards, please email me (jacobsok@stockton.edu) noting the award you would like to read for and your area(s) of specialty, academic rank (independent scholars are welcome), and publications by June 1, 2014.

If you have any questions about the awards, please let me know.
