2022 CUAA Graduate Student Paper Prize Competition

The Critical Urban Anthropology Association (CUAA) is pleased to announce its graduate student paper prize competition. We are seeking papers that address CUAA’s interests, including urban life, space and place, poverty and homelessness, infrastructure, urban governance, social movements, transnational and global intersections, refugees and immigration. The prize includes a cash award of $250. The winner will be announced at the 2022 AAA meetings in Seattle.   

Authors who are current graduate students or who have graduated within the 2022 calendar year are eligible for the competition, as long as the submission was composed during enrollment in a graduate program. Submissions will be accepted from both faculty and the students themselves. Letters of recommendation/justification are not required, nor is CUAA membership.

International entries are encouraged, but papers must be submitted in English. Papers should be no more than 30 double-spaced pages, including bibliography, notes and images/figures, and in 12-point font. The paper’s formatting (e.g., citations, bibliographies, etc.) should be consistent throughout.  

Papers should be submitted by email to Suzanne Scheld (Suzanne.scheld@csun.edu) by September 1, 2022. Please direct any queries about the award or alternative submission arrangements to her.
