Gordon K. and Sybil Lewis Award

Deadline: March 5, 2019

The Caribbean Studies Association (CSA) is pleased to announce the 2019 Gordon K. and Sybil Farrell Lewis Award. The award consists of a Diploma and USD$500, and it will be presented on June 7, 2019, at the 44th Annual CSA Conference in Santa Marta, Colombia.

We will be entertaining submissions in any of the CSA approved languages: English, Spanish and French.

Among the criteria that will be weighed by the panel of judges are:

  1. The theoretical contribution to our understanding of historical and/or contemporary issues within a discipline of the broader field of Caribbean Studies.
  2. The methodological rigor of the work, e.g., the use of primary source or archival/historical data, methodological innovativeness, and suggestions for new avenues of research and thinking about the Caribbean.

Publishers and authors must send two copies of their book, according to the subject (Humanities or Social Sciences) to two members of the corresponding jury, according to the language in which the book is written.
