Scholars' Roundtable Honor

 

CSA Scholars' Roundtable Honor

Purpose

The CSA Scholars’ Roundtable Honor recognizes those who exemplify high standards in costume scholarship. Roundtable scholars are also charged with creating a National Symposium presentation that stimulates consideration and discussion of issues pertaining to costume scholarship.

Description

The Scholars' Roundtable was formed in 1997 to enhance costume scholarship, taking it in innovative and interdisciplinary directions. During their two-year term, members of the Roundtable benefit from exchanging ideas as they plan their program for the CSA National Symposium, while CSA members at the National Symposium benefit from the scholars’ presentation and resulting discussion of issues in the field of costume studies.

Eligibility

Any member of CSA is eligible for nomination. Self-nominations are accepted. Nominees should be those who:

  • have done or who are doing innovative work in the field of costume
  • are willing to explore scholarly ideas, share their own approaches and methodology, and work collaboratively with other scholars
  • are interested in stimulating the consideration and discussion of issues pertaining to the field of costume
  • Nomination Deadline

    Nominations for the 2014 Scholars’ Roundtable are due by December 15, 2013.

    Nomination Procedure

    Once the consent of the potential nominee is obtained, nominators should submit the nominee’s name and contact information to:

    Ann Wass, Scholars’ Roundtable Committee Chair
    5903 60th Avenue
    Riverdale, MD 20737
    annbwass@aol.com

    The committee chair contacts nominees, who submit a C.V. and statement (double spaced, no more than five pages) that outlines the approaches, methodology, and innovations of their scholarly work and cites examples of issues in costume scholarship that would be good subjects for the National Symposium presentation.

    Selection Criteria

    Roundtable scholars from one year serve as the selection committee for the next year’s scholars.

    Nominees will be evaluated on:

  • high standards of innovative scholarship
  • demonstrated critical thinking about scholarly ideas and approaches
  • potential to work collaboratively to create a stimulating presentation for the National Symposium
  • Scholars' Roundtable Schedule

    Nominees will be notified of the outcome of the selection process by February 15. Selected roundtable scholars then work together to prepare a presentation for the CSA National Symposium that explores scholarly issues and stimulates discussion.
