Call for Nominations: Nancy C. M. Hartsock Endowed Graduate Student Award
We are pleased to invite nominations for the annual Nancy C.M. Hartsock Graduate Student
Paper prize. This award recognizes the creative achievements of an emerging scholar doing
work in the area of feminist theory. The recipient receives a $1000 cash prize.
Deadline and submission
The deadline for submission is 5 p.m. PST on March 1, 2021. All current graduate students in
the College of Arts and Sciences are eligible. Nominations should include: a paper or chapter
written or published within the past two years (publications are acceptable); a one page letter
of introduction to the candidate’s research interests and accomplishments, and a CV. These
materials should be submitted electronically c/o Ann Buscherfeld (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Nancy C.M. Hartsock (1943-2015) was a major contributor to the field of feminist
theory. She joined the departments of Political Science and Women Studies (now
Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies) at the University of Washington in 1984. Her
magnum opus, Money, Sex, and Power: Toward a Feminist Historical Materialism
(1983), offered a significant contribution to the theorization of women’s sex- and gender
specific labor as a resource for the development of a “feminist standpoint.” Nancy’s
essays on feminist standpoint theory are among the most influential and widely-cited pieces
of scholarship in feminist and political theory. Her work has been adopted, extended and
revised, as well as criticized, by feminist scholars, and continues to be a vital touchstone
for feminist inquiry.
On the occasion of her retirement in 2009, Nancy’s commitments to graduate
teaching and multidisciplinary feminist research were honored in the decision to create a
graduate student paper prize in her name. It was Nancy’s stipulation that graduate
students from all departments and schools in the College of Arts and Sciences would be
eligible to apply for this prize, which recognizes the creative achievements of emerging
scholars whose contributions to feminist theory are excellent and noteworthy.
Nancy’s work in feminist theory was inspired by a deep commitment to justice.
In addition to scholarly work in the field of feminist theory, Nancy was interested in
related efforts to address issues of injustice, including: race and ethnicity studies,
sexuality studies, disability studies, animal studies, and global disparities in life-chances.
In May, Advanced Travel Therapy will be awarding $5,000 to a deserving student currently pursuing a graduate degree in Physical, Occupational or Speech Therapy. There are absolutely no strings attached, they are thrilled to be able to give back to hard working therapy students.
Students can apply for the scholarship by completing the application here. The deadline to apply is 5/5/20.
