American Anthropological Association Society for Linguistic Anthropology
Award for Public Outreach and Community Service
Extended Submission Deadline: November 15, 2014
Newly created by the SLA (Society For Linguistic Anthropology), this award
honors an SLA member or members for work that effectively impacts public
awareness of social issues involving language and communication and/or
represents a significant service to a particular community outside of the
academy. Applicants may self-nominate or consent to the nomination of others.
Works in any medium are eligible, including but not limited to books, reports,
exhibits, pedagogical materials/curricula, documentary films, newspaper or
magazine articles, blogs, digitized or broadcast media, and lectures. To be
considered, individuals must have published, presented, or aired some
representative work during the five years immediately preceding the submission
Each nomination should contain four components:
1) The candidate's concise description of the goals and purpose of the work
(in no more than 250 words).
2) A copy or statement of the work for which the nominee is being considered
for this SLA Award.
3) Relevant supporting materials as evidence of increased public awareness or
performance of community service. Forms of evidence may include newspaper
articles, public notices, online publishing and dissemination, letters of
commendation, program development, and so forth.
4) Two letters of support; one from an academic colleague and one from outside
Four copies and/or a digital version of all materials are required and should
be sent to the address below. A Selection Committee, appointed by the SLA
President, will consider the applications and designate (an) awardee(s) who
will be announced at the Annual Business meeting. The Selection Committee may
choose to make one or two awards, or none, in any given year. Note that
because an individual’s representative work is eligible for five years, this
evidence of accomplishment, with any relevant updates, could be considered in
more than one annual award cycle.
