Call for Submissions
The NACCS Book Award recognizes an outstanding new book in the field of Chicana and Chicano Studies. We will consider single-authored scholarly monographs and books published during 2010. Translations, reprints, re-editions of previously published works, edited volumes, multi-author collections of essays, or books previously nominated for this award, are not eligible. We invite nominations from NACCS members and publishers.
Authors may also self-nominate. The recipient will be honored with a book signing during the annual conference and a seal that will identify the book as a NACCS Book Award Winner.
The DEADLINE for nominations of books published during 2012 is November 3, 2013.
Nominations should include a submission letter, including the name of the author, the title of the book, the date of publication, and the publisher, as well as three copies of the book. Nomination information should be sent to the chair of the committee at email@example.com. Copies of books should be sent to each of the three committee members separately. For the list of addresses, and for any further questions or information, contact the committee chair.
