FYI Body: This award is intended to promote critical language scholarship and to recognize and advance the academic work of emergent scholars who have completed their doctoral dissertations within the past five years. It honors the efforts of the founding members of the International Society for Language Studies (ISLS) who established the first international society dedicated to critical scholarship in language studies. The award is granted once a year. Previous applicants are welcome to reapply. We encourage all applicants to join the ISLS, but membership is not required for nomination. The winner is expected to become an ISLS member.

The award includes an opportunity for awardees to publish an article in the society’s journal, Critical Inquiry in Language Studies (CILS), or a chapter in their Readings in Language Studies book series. Awardees will be recognized at the society’s biennial conference and will have a portion of their travel expenses to the conference covered.

The application for the Founders’ Emergent Scholars Award is due November 30, 2013.
