The AWGSA PhD Award was established to promote and advance feminist scholarship in Australia by recognising emerging research in the fields of Women’s and Gender Studies and related disciplines. The award is made to the most outstanding doctoral thesis completed at an Australian university that clearly and extensively engages with feminist paradigms. The inaugural award was made in 2010, and the prize is awarded every 2 years.
Nominations for the 2018 Award for doctorates awarded in 2016 or 2017 have now closed. The Award will be given at the 2018 AWGSA Conference.
