Distinguished Feminist Research Lecture Award

Distinguished Feminist Research Lecture Award

The Feminist Research Institute annually recognizes a faculty member through our Distinguished Feminist Research Lecture award. The recipient of the Distinguished Feminist Research Lecture award will receive a $500 honorarium, deliver a lecture presentation as part of the FRI lecture series in Spring 2018, and publish the lecture to the website of the Feminist Research Institute.

Criteria: Candidates for the lectureship shall be voting members of the UNM faculty and will be evaluated according to the following criteria: scholarly record of feminist research and publication; evidence of innovation in disciplinary or interdisciplinary approaches to feminist scholarship; application of feminist methodologies in teaching, service, and/or community work; proposed lecture. Please note, the Feminist Research Institute defines “feminist” research in broad terms, including for example queer, queer of color, and LGBTQ scholarship. 

Nomination: Candidates for this award may self-nominate or be nominated by others, including UNM faculty, Deans, department/program chairs and directors, and the FRI Board.  Nominations for the 2018 award should be submitted to femresin@unm.edu by Friday, October 13, 2017. Nominations should simply include the name, title, and department of the nominee.

 Application: The FRI Board will confirm nominees’ eligibility and willingness to deliver the lecture and solicit necessary materials from the candidates: letter of interest, proposed lecture title and abstract, and curriculum vitae. Applications for the 2018 award will be due to femresin@unm.edu by Friday, November 3, 2017.
