CSAA2021 Prize for Best Abstract

The CSAA2021 Conference 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 to 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
The award recipient will be contacted via email after abstract the submission is closed (30 July). Please click here to submit an abstract.
