Competition for the 2022 ALAA/LASA-VCS Afro Latin American/Afro-Latinx Scholarship Prize

The Association for Latin American Art, an affiliate of the College Art Association, and the Visual Culture Section of the Latin American Studies Association, are pleased to sponsor the ALAA Annual Afro Latin American/Afro-Latinx Essay Prize. We will consider scholarly essays published in a peer reviewed journal, edited volume, or exhibition catalogue during the previous year, on any aspect of Afro Latin American art, architecture, or visual culture in Latin America and the United States, covering any period from the colonial era to the present. The award consists of a $500 honorarium and will be presented at the ALAA business meeting at the annual meeting of the College Art Association in February as well as the LASA business meeting at the annual conference in April. The name of the recipient will appear in the newsletters of both ALAA and LASA.

For the February 2022 Award, we will evaluate articles that meet the following criteria:
• Publication date between September 1, 2020 and August 31, 2021.
• Essays may be written in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.

Essays will be evaluated by a three-person committee of accomplished scholars in the field, each with expertise in a wide geographical and temporal range. For consideration, authors should send their submission as a pdf to the Chair of the award committee no later than November 15, 2021. Peer nominations will also be accepted.
