Thanks to a generous sponsorship from the National Institute of Social Sciences, we are able to offer prizes for a juried competition in which graduate students who have completed (or expect to complete) their Master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation in the 2022-23 academic year will be given a chance to summarize their project in three minutes. 

Last year, the grand prize ($400) went to Stephanie Jacobs for “Nature is my Higher Power: Ontological 'Prospecting' in Addiction-Recovery.” First runner up ($200) went to Dustin Reuther for “Dulac-You-Wanna: Cultural Heritage and Subsiding Ecologies in Louisiana's Coastal Marsh.” The second runner-up ($100) went to Justin Haruyama for “Mining for Coal and Souls: Modes of Relationality in Emerging Chinese-Zambian Worlds.”
