For those of you who are teaching Scandinavian Studies this semester—keep an eye out for quality student work. If you have a student who has submitted or may still submit an excellent paper in 2020, please consider nominating it for one of the two AASSC Publication Awards by the Friday, January 15, 2021 deadline!
(1) The AASSC Gurli Aagaard Woods Undergraduate Publication Award for the best essay written for an undergraduate course relating to Scandinavia.
(2) The AASSC Marna Feldt Graduate Publication Award for the best essay written for a graduate course relating to Scandinavia.
The award-winning essays will be published in Scandinavian-Canadian Studies/Études scandinaves au Canada.
Instructors who teach Scandinavian-content courses are invited to nominate one essay per year for consideration by the prize jury.
Undergraduate student essays between 2000 to 4000 words in length and graduate student essays between 5000 to 7000 words in length (excluding footnotes and bibliography) should be submitted in Chicago style (using in-text references).
Papers written and submitted to their instructors in the year 2020 are eligible for nomination. The deadline for nominations and submissions for the award is Friday, January 15, 2021.
The instructor making the nomination must remove the students’ name from the submitted essay. Please attach a title sheet to the submission with the following information: the student’s name and contact information, the instructor’s name, institutional affiliation, and contact information, and the title and dates of the course in which the work was produced.
