Bonnie Ritter Book Award Call for Submissions
The National Communication Association's Feminist and Women Studies Division is pleased to announce the annual call for submissions of scholarly books that speak to the mission of our division. The Bonnie Ritter Book Award in Feminist/Women Studies in Communication is an annual award honoring research in the field of communication that interrogates questions related to feminism, women studies, and gender.
Bonnie Ritter did most of the groundwork and was the primary organizer for the group of women scholars who formed the National Communication Association Women's Caucus in 1971. The caucus’s success led, more than a decade later, to establishing NCA's Feminist and Women Studies Division so that feminist scholarship would have a formal and recognized home within NCA.
This award is testament to the courage, tenacity, and intellectual imagination of Professor Ritter and her colleagues.
Authors working within all methodological perspectives are encouraged to apply. For 2016, the committee will consider books published in 2014-2015 as well. Self-nominations are encouraged.
Interested authors should:
1. Contact Danielle M. Stern, Chair FWSD, with your intent to submit no later than May 1, 2016.
2. Send a copy of the book to each of the four members of the selection committee by June 1, 2016. Books will not be returned. Mailing addresses for the committee are:
