Call for Nominations: CASDW Annual Research Award

CASDW invites nominations for its Annual Research Award—an award given to the author(s) of the best journal article or book chapter published by a 2016 CASDW member during the 2016 calendar year. Co-authored articles or chapters will be eligible as long as one of the authors was a CASDW member during the year of the award.  The deadline for nominations is April 30, 2017. The winner of the award will be announced at the 2017 CASDW conference at Ryerson University.

The selection criteria are as follows:

  •    Significance and contribution to the field.
  •    Depth of the research.
  •    General quality of the writing, including its comprehensibility.
  •    Originality.

The award includes a prize of $100 and a one-year CASDW membership for the following year.

Please note: Ideally, e-mail nominations will include an attached pdf of the journal article or book chapter, as well as a complete reference.

Nominations should be sent in an e-mail addressed to Graham Smart (GrahamSmart@CUNET.CARLETON.CA) and copied to the other members of the selection committee: Sarah Banting (, Sheila Hannon (, and Duncan Koerber (
