Submissions are now open for this year’s Tobin Siebers Prize for Disability Studies in the Humanities which is awarded by the University of Michigan Press.
From the Call for Submissions: “The prize is awarded yearly for the best book-length manuscript on a topic of pressing urgency in the field. Reflecting on the work of the scholar the prize commemorates, the competition invites submissions on a wide range of topics, from literary and cultural studies, to trans-historical research, to contributions to disability theory such as work in crip/queer studies.”
The manuscript for my book Foucault and Feminist Philosophy of Disability won this prize in 2016. I remember how delighted and honoured I felt to win it. At the time, the prize was 5000USD; it has now been reduced to 1500USD. Still very nice!
The winning manuscript will be published in the Corporealities: Discourses of Disability book series of the University of Michigan Press.
The deadline for submissions is September 16, 2019. A full description of submission requirements and list of past recipients of the Tobin Siebers Prize are here.
