Each year, SDS proudly awards the Tanis Doe Prize for the best poster, which includes a cash award and a certificate of recognition The Tanis Doe award is open to everyone at all levels of education and experience. Additionally, in 2012, SDS will sponsor an “Honorable Mention” at each level of education: K-12, community college, undergraduate, and graduate. Authors of the posters earning Honorable mention will likewise receive a certificate of recognition. All winners will be recognized on the SDS website. We welcome proposals in all areas of disability studies, as well as submissions premised on this year’s theme. Presentations may be in various formats including: papers, panels, round tables, performances, video screenings, posters, etc. Posters will be considered by a panel of judges appointed by members of the conference program committee; awardees will be selected and announced at the Poster Session.
The deadline to submit a proposal for next year’s conference has been extended to December 9, 2011. Visit disstudies.org to submit!
