The CASCA Women’s Network invites nominations for the CASCA Women’s Network’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Contributions to Feminist Anthropology in Canada.
This achievement award was established as part of the 25th Anniversary Celebrations of the Canadian Anthropology Society’s Women’s Network. Its goal is to recognize and pay tribute to feminist scholars who, through their work in the field of Social/Cultural Anthropology in Canada, have made a significant contribution to the field of feminist anthropology as scholars, mentors and activists. Recognition through nomination is made every 2-3 years.
The first CASCA Women’s Network Lifetime Achievement Award for Feminist Anthropology in Canada was awarded in 2011 to Dr. Elvi Whittaker. Dr. Whittaker is Professor Emerita in the Department of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. She was recognized as one of the founders and first coordinators of the CASCA Women’s Network, as well as a past-president of CASCA, and past-president of the Canadian Social Science Federation.
Please watch for our annual Call for Nominations (in French or English) which will ask for your nomination in the form of a letter detailing a candidate’s academic, mentoring and activist contributions to feminist anthropology in Canada, and will specify the deadline and submission process.
The deadline for nominations for consideration is September 1.
