Award Description:
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 and are entering into the community of scholars. 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. In particular, it recognizes research that addresses neglected populations, focuses on little-studied research sites, offers new perspectives, and/or uses innovative methods. 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 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.
