David Sanjek Graduate Student Paper Prize

by Victor Szabo on May 3, 2016

The committee for the David Sanjek Graduate Student Paper Prize of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music – US Branch (IASPM-US) invites graduate students who will be presenting at the 2016 IASPM-US and Canada conference to submit their papers for consideration.

Eligibility: Any student who presents, in person, a formal paper at the 2016 meeting is eligible for the prize. A student shall be defined as a person pursuing an active course of studies in a degree program. This includes persons who are engaged in writing the doctoral dissertation but not those who are teaching full-time while doing so. Student applicants must be members of IASPM-US. (IASPM Canada will hold its own competition, distinct from that of the US branch.)

Application Process: To apply for the prize, candidates must electronically submit a copy of their paper to 2016sanjekprize@gmail.com along with a brief bio (75 words) and copy of their conference registration receipt. Paper submissions should be in Word or pdf format.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 20 at 11:59 pm. The paper deposited is to be the version that is read at the conference and may not exceed twelve double-spaced pages (roughly 3,900 words).

The winner will be announced at the general business meeting at the annual conference. The award includes a prize of $500.

Please feel free to email the chair of the committee, Eric Hung (msumeric@gmail.com), if you have any questions.

Committee:  Andrew Flory, Kariann Goldschmitt, Eric Hung
