Zora Neale Hurston 2012 Travel Award
Deadline: August 1, 2012
The Association for Feminist Anthropology (AFA) announces the 2012 Zora Neale Hurston Travel Award competition, continuing our tradition since 2002 of honoring the pioneering African American anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston. Visit the Zora Neale Hurston webpage of the AFA website for further information on Hurston's contributions and accomplishments.
The AFA will award 3 grants of $500 each for travel to the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) in San Francisco, CA. Eligibility is restricted to students and recent PhDs working in feminist anthropology; preference is given to individuals from underrepresented groups. Applicants must be giving a paper, organizing a session, or seeking employment. The winning awardees will be notified prior to the AAA meetings, with the awards formally announced and checks given out at the AFA business meeting at the AAA meetings in San Francisco.
