2019 Tobin Siebers Prize for Disability Studies in the Humanities

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.
