The Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies (CAWLS) is pleased to announce the awards which will be presented at our annual conference in June 2015.
CAWLS Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Scholarship
This prize recognizes outstanding scholarship completed by an undergraduate student on work and social change (precise emphasis, academic discipline, cultural context, and time period are open). An electronic copy of the assignment should be sent by the professor or the student to [email protected] by May 1st, 2015, along with a concise explanation of any information deemed pertinent (e.g. the assignment instructions). Formal essays and more unconventional assignments are welcome. The student does not need to be a member of CAWLS in order to be eligible.
New Voices in Labour Studies – Best Paper Prize
This award is given to the author of the best paper presented by a new scholar (graduate student, post-doctoral fellow, or faculty/researcher in the first five years of their appointment) at the CAWLS annual conference in 2015. To be considered for the award, electronic copies of the paper should be sent to [email protected] by May 1st, 2015.
CAWLS Book Prize
This award honours the best book in Canadian work and labour studies published in 2014. Nominations should be sent to [email protected] by May 1st, 2015. This award is for authored books rather than edited collections. Once a short list is created, authors will be invited to present their work at a session of the CAWLS 2015 conference, and attendees will vote for the best book.
