The Women’s Caucus Race and Gender Intersectional Award is an annual award of $500 made by the ASECS Women’s Caucus to encourage and recognize excellent intersectional scholarship on gender, race, and any additional intersectional dimensions with a focus on women in the eighteenth-century. 

The award is open to all members of ASECS for projects-in-progress.  Winning projects must advance an intersectional analysis of gender and race in the eighteenth century. A required element of this intersectional approach includes a focus on women, gender fluid and/or non-binary persons.  Additional intersectional lenses such as indigeneity, empire, sexuality, or class are encouraged and welcomed.  Projects typically fall within the period of 1660-1820 though projects spanning a longer time period will also be considered.

The award winner will be notified soon after the committee has made its decision and will be announced at the ASECS annual meeting and the Women’s Caucus luncheon.


The award winner will be asked to submit a brief report on the progress of the project one year after receiving the award, and whenever possible, will serve on the award committee in the following year.  award winners will be requested to acknowledge this grant’s support in the publication(s) that result(s) from the project.  

Applications must include a 2-page CV with items relevant to the project submitted for award consideration; a 3-4-page proposal outlining the project; a 2-page bibliography of pertinent works; and a budget explaining the candidate’s plan for using the funds for the project. Please combine all documents into a single PDF.


The deadline for this award is February 1st, 2023.
