CSAA2021 Continuum Prize

The CSAA 2021 committee is committed to supporting and disseminating postgraduate research from cultural studies and related fields. In conjunction with Continuum: Journal of Media & Cultural Studies, we’re pleased to announce a CSAA2021 Continuum Prize for the Best Abstract (350-500 words). The prize is $1000 to support conference attendance and a conference registration fee waiver.

In keeping with the CSAA2021 theme Bodies In Flux, the  CSAA2021 Continuum Prize committee has a keen interest in abstracts that suggest original, creative, and critical approaches to the understanding of bodies. Such approaches may include, although are not limited to:

– phenomenological or experiential approaches to lived bodily experiences

– feminist philosophical approaches to relationality, interdependency, and/or vulnerability

– studies of intimacy, pleasure, sexuality, and subjectivity

– critical approaches the governance and institutional organisation of bodies

– Science and Technology Studies (STS) approaches to the transformation of bodies in and through technologies

In assessing abstract submissions, the committee will consider:

– originality, innovation and/or creativity

– demonstrated knowledge of the field of inquiry (allowing for the constraint of 350-500 words)

– clarity and coherence of writing
