ASECS Women’s Caucus EDITING and TRANSLATION FELOWSHIP

The ASECS Women’s Caucus Editing and Translation Fellowship, is an annual
award of $1000 to support an editing or a translation work in progress of
an eighteenth-century primary text on a feminist or a Women’s Studies
subject. Editing and translation work of eighteenth-century texts in
languages other than English are eligible. The award is open to all
members of ASECS who have received a PhD. Proposals from Emeritae/i
faculty that do not already have professional support for the project
will also be considered. The award is meant to fund works in progress,
commensurate in scope with a scholarly article-length project to a longer
scholarly and/or a classroom edition with a strong scholarly basis for
which research and work is well under way, rather than work that is
already completed.

To be eligible for the prize, projects must translate and/or edit works
by eighteenth-century women writers or works that significantly advance
our understanding of women’s experiences in the eighteenth century or
offer a feminist analysis of any aspect of eighteenth-century culture
and/or society. Projects typically fall within the period from 1660 to
1820.

Applications must include an abbreviated curriculum vita that lists
achievements relevant to the project, a three to five page proposal
outlining the project, a two page bibliography of pertinent works, two
letters of recommendation sent directly by the referees to the ASECS
office, and a budget explaining the candidate’s plans for using the
funds. The winner will be asked to submit a brief written report on the
progress of the project one year after receiving the award, and whenever
possible, will serve on the Award committee in the following year. Award
winners will be requested to acknowledge this grant’s support in the
publication that results from the project. The prizewinner will be
announced at the ASECS annual meeting and the Women’s Caucus Luncheon.
Send FIVE COPIES of eligible proposals directly to the ASECS office,
(please indicate name of the prize), PO Box 7867, Wake Forest University,
Winston-Salem, N C 27109. SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY JANUARY 15,
