The Society for Medieval Feminist Scholarship announces the 2014 competition for the best first monograph on feminist scholarship on the Middle Ages. The prize alternates every other year between a published essay and a first book. The SMFS Awards Committee solicits nominations for Best First Feminist Book in any area of medieval studies. Nominated books should represent the best in feminist scholarship published in 2012 and 2013. The prize, which includes an award of $500, will be announced at the SMFS reception at the 2014 International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI. Self-nominations are acceptable.
Please send at least two copies (more if available) of nominated books, along with a brief cover letter summarizing the book’s merits and contributions, by 31 December 2013 to:
