Authors Meet Critics

Authors Meet Critics sessions are designed to bring authors of recent, cutting-edge books, deemed to be important contributions to the field of women’s studies, together in robust conversation with a maximum of three discussants that both celebrate and critically engage the publication. Three or four such sessions will be included in the program and NWSA members are invited to nominate books published between 2011 and 2016. Both single- authored books and edited collections that are the result of collaborative engagement among the contributors will be considered. Only NWSA members may submit nominations, including self-nominations; nominations by presses will not be accepted. Members of the 2016 program committee will review the nominations and make selection decisions. Any individual who proposes a session for consideration in the program will be notified about the committee’s decision and, in the event that a proposed session is accepted, serve as its session organizer.

Online only submissions will be considered, the deadline for Author Meets Critics Sessions proposals is February 22, 2016 at 11:59 p.m.
