FEB 21 Deadline: Visual Sociology/Methodology Awards
February 21, 2018 is the deadline for submitting nominations and supplementary materials for the Rieger Award Program (for outstanding work by graduate students in visual sociology) and for the Prosser Award Program (for outstanding work by beginning scholars in visual methodologies).
The Rieger and Prosser awards programs are administered by the International Visual Sociology Association (IVSA). Award winners for each program receive a cash prize of $1000 USD, an invitation to publish digital representations of their work through the IVSA web site, and a certificate of merit from the IVSA. Award winners are also eligible to apply for an IVSA Presidential Travel Stipend (of up to $1,000 USD) to attend the IVSA’s 2018 Annual Conference — which will be held June 25-28 and hosted by the University of Paris-Saclay—University of Evry, Evry, France.
All active IVSA members are eligible to submit nominations, including self-nominations, for either the Rieger or Prosser Awards. To be considered for a Rieger or Prosser Award, nominees do not need to be IVSA members, but an IVSA member must nominate them. (If you are not already a member please consider joining us.)
The Rieger and Prosser Award programs differ in terms of eligibility, application materials and review criteria. To ensure that a nomination package is appropriate and complete, please review the information for each program you are considering.
