CSWEP: Calls and Announcements

CALL FOR ARTICLES

RSF: THE RUSSELL SAGE FOUNDATION JOURNAL OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCES

Issue and Conference on "The Changing Roles and Status of
Women and Effects on Society and the Economy"

The remarkable gains in educational achievement and advances in the economic and social standing of women have been distinguishing features of the 20th and early 21st centuries. RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences invites paper submissions for its upcoming special issue on the changing roles and status of women and the effects on society and the economy. The special issue will consider both the determinants of these important economic and social changes as well as their consequences. These papers will be organized into three sections. The first section will examine changes in women's labor market outcomes including education, experience, occupations, and pay. The second section will address family and intimate relationships. The third section will address issues in politics, law, and culture.

The journal issue is being edited by Martha Bailey (Department of Economics, University of Michigan) and Thomas A. DiPrete (Department of Sociology, Columbia University).

For more detailed information about this issue, including examples of analyses we anticipate would be of interest to the research and policy communities and submission guidelines, please click here.

CSWEP Call for Nominations

2014 Elaine Bennett Research Prize
Deadline: September 22, 2014

The Elaine Bennett Research Prize is awarded every other year to recognize, support, and encourage outstanding contributions by young women in the economics profession. The 2014 Bennett Prize will be presented at the CSWEP Business Meeting held in January 2015 at the AEA/ASSA Annual Meeting in Boston, MA.

Nominees should be at the beginning of their career—within 7 years of earning their PhD during the year of nomination—and have demonstrated exemplary research contributions in their field. For the 2014 Bennett Prize, nominees must have earned their Ph.D. in 2007 or later. Tenure is neither required nor prohibited. There are past recipients who have been tenured at the time of the award, though many have received the award prior to tenure.

Nominations should contain the candidate’s CV, relevant publications, a letter of nomination and two supporting letters. The Bennett Prize is for fundamental intellectual contributions to economics. Correspondingly, the nomination letter should describe the candidate’s research and its significance and supporting letters should come from experts in the field who are best able to speak to these contributions, regardless of departmental affiliation. Nominations will be judged by a committee appointed by CSWEP.

The prize is made possible by contributions from William Zame and others, in memory of Elaine Bennett, who made significant contributions in economic theory and experimental economics and encouraged the work of young women in all areas of economics.

CSWEP Call for Nominations
2014 Carolyn Shaw Bell Award

Deadline: September 29, 2014

The Carolyn Shaw Bell Award was created in January 1998 as part of the 25th Anniversary celebration of the founding of CSWEP. Carolyn Shaw Bell, the Katharine Coman Chair Professor Emerita of Wellesley College, was the first Chair of CSWEP.  To read a short biography of Carolyn Shaw Bell, see the Winter 2005 Newsletter.

The Bell Award is given annually to an individual who has furthered the status of women in the economics profession, through example, achievements, increasing our understanding of how women can advance in the economics profession, and mentoring others.

All nominations should include a nomination letter, updated CV and three or more supporting letters, with preferably at least two from mentees. As this award celebrates mentoring, nomination letters should be geared toward that activity, rather than toward academic achievements. Also note that all nominations are automatically kept alive for consideration by the CSWEP-appointed Award Committee for a period of three years. 

For further information on the Bell Award, including details on past recipients, click here.

Inquiries and nominations may be sent to:

Marjorie McElroy, CSWEP Chair
Professor of Economics

CSWEP Call for Nominations
Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund

Deadline: Ongoing

CSWEP welcomes applications to the Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund, which was established to encourage senior mentoring women and institutions to incorporate mentoring of junior professionals into their programs. The fund provides small grants (typically less than $1K) to permit mentors to either extend a visit to an institution for the purpose of mentoring or to visit an institution for that purpose alone. Applications for funds may be submitted by the institution, junior women or the mentor herself. The application must include cost-sharing with the home institution and the mentoring must benefit more than an individual faculty member. Mentoring does not need to be field specific and can also include professional development advice. Successful applicants will be asked to write a summary of what they have gained from the mentoring effort.

For full details on application criteria and to access the application document, click here.


Please read the CSWEP Policy Regarding Sessions at the American Economic Association and Regional Association Meeting.
