PSi 20 Prizes and Awards


Dwight Conquergood Award

** Deadline: April 5, 2014

Every year the board of PSi makes this award in honour of the memory of Dwight Conquergood to an individual whose work around cultural performance in some way carries a connection to Dwight´s own practice. The award covers the cost of attending the annual PSi conference, including travel, accommodation and registration fees.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Who Can Apply?
The Dwight Conquergood Award will be given to an artist, an activist or an emerging academic conducting research or working on projects with disenfranchised communities. The award will be open to graduate students and early career researchers (three years since PhD) as well as to practitioners and community members themselves who might be working outside of educational or institutional structures. Only applicants who have already had their proposal for a presentation accepted by the organisers of the current PSi Conference are eligible to receive the award.

How to Apply?
Application for the DCA consists of a one page CV and a brief accompanying letter outlining your reasons for application and suitability for the award and the contact details of two referees. The application should include a reflection on how the work relates to the spirit of Dwight Conquergood’s work, for example by focusing on marginalized groups or challenging the boundaries between scholarly work and a wider sense of ethnography.

If the applicant is studying for a higher degree, please supply a letter from your supervisor about progress to date. If the applicant is a practitioner please supply a letter of support from someone who knows your previous work.

Applications for an award for 2014 should be sent to Laura Luise Schultz at: laura@hum.ku.dk

When to apply?
Deadline for applications is April 5, 2014. Any applications received after this date will not be considered.

What does the Award consist of?
If an airfare is involved, the award will only cover the cost of an economy airfare. Accommodation costs will be covered at a hotel to be agreed between the applicant and the board of PSi and only for the duration of the conference. The award covers the full cost of registration as well as 1 year’s membership of PSi.

When will I know the result of my application?
A small committee consisting of the conference organisers and members of the PSi board will judge the Dwight Conquergood Award. Applicants will be advised within 8 weeks of the application being received by the board.

What happens if I win?
The award will be made every year at the AGM of the annual conference.
Winners of the award must attend the conference and the AGM and should also participate in the meetings of the relevant PSi committee (e.g. the emerging scholar’s committee or the artistic committee).
