Please consider nominating or self-nominating a paper for the following two awards! Due date for both is *October 31, 2014*.
1. Rehak Award
The Rehak Award, named in memory of former LCC co-chair Paul Rehak (1954-2004), honors the excellence of a publication relating to the LCC's mission, including, but not limited to, homosocial and homoerotic relationships and environments, ancient sexuality and gender roles, and representation of the gendered body. The range of eligible work covers the breadth of ancient Mediterranean society, from prehistory to late antiquity, and the various approaches of classicists drawing on textual and material culture.
Articles and book chapters from monographs or edited volumes, published in the past three years (i.e 2012, 2013, 2014) are eligible. Self-nominations are welcome; the nomination and selection process is confidential. Membership in the Caucus is not required, nor is any specific rank or affiliation.
Nominations should be made by October 31, 2014 to LCC co-chair, Deborah Kamen <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Please provide full bibliographic information, a copy of the text, and/or contact information for the nominee. The award will be announced at the opening night reception of the SCS/AIA meeting in New Orleans.
2. Graduate Student Paper Award
Lambda's new award is designed to encourage and reward scholarship by pre-Ph.D. scholars on issues related to the LCC’s mission, including, but not limited to: homosocial and homoerotic relationships and environments, ancient sexuality and gender roles, representations of the gendered body, and queer theory.
