2022 Peter Lang Emerging Scholars Competition in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies

Peter Lang Publishing is delighted to announce the 2022 Peter Lang Emerging Scholars Competition in Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Proposals are invited from emerging scholars in Women’s Studies, Gender Studies and Sexuality Studies for single-author books to be evaluated by a distinguished editorial board. Proposals may be interdisciplinary or in any of the following disciplines: Cultural Studies, Education, History, Law & Economics, Literature, Media & Communication, or Politics. We also welcome projects representing regional perspectives (e.g. Irish or Swiss).

Proposals should be submitted to editorial@peterlang.com with the subject line ‘Emerging Scholars Competition’ by 15 October 2022 and consist of an abstract (including chapter synopses), a sample chapter (5,000 to 10,000 words in length), a CV, and a statement describing how you are an emerging scholar, in separate Microsoft Word documents. Proposals under review elsewhere should not be submitted.

The winner(s) will be offered a contract for a book with this distinction. Planned manuscripts should be from 60,000 to 100,000 words in length and written in English, French, Spanish or German. Authors will be expected to prepare the manuscript in accordance with the style guidelines provided.

Decisions will be made by 1 December 2022 and the winners will be notified shortly thereafter.
