submissions for the Annual Rappaport Student Panel and Prize. A Rappaport
Prize Panel Discussion will be held at the 2012 AAA meeting. Up to five
graduate students will be selected to present a paper in an A&E sponsored
session, and one of those selected will be awarded the Rappaport Student
Prize, which includes a $250 cash award. All five panelists (including the
Prize winner) will receive partial support for travel to the AAA meetings.
All of the selected panelists will be encouraged and guided by the A&E
Board to pursue publication in relevant journals.
Interested graduate students should submit a 500 word, single-authored
abstract Katja Neves (firstname.lastname@example.org ) either as as a Microsoft
Word attachment, PDF, or Pages for Mac.
* If selected as a finalist, a student will be allowed only to present
in the Rappaport session (although serving as a discussant or
organizer for another session is allowed).
The deadline is January 15, 2012 (Eastern Standard Time). A committee
will select up to five students to be invited to present a paper as part
of the 2012 Rappaport Prize Panel Discussion. Students will be notified
by the committee regarding decisions for the Student Panel in early
Those selected to present in the Discussion Panel will have until October
1, 2012 to write their full, article-length (up to 8000 words) papers.
Consideration for the Rappaport Prize will be based on these papers. The
papers should be written with the expectation that they will ultimately be
submitted for publication.
A&E members and audience will participate in a discussion after the paper
presentations. The Rappaport Prize winner, selected from among the
panelists, will be announced at the A&E Business Meeting.
The Rappaport Prize and Panel is part of a wider effort to improve the
mentoring process for graduate students as they pursue A&E related
careers. Participating provides an opportunity for students to receive
constructive feedback on their work by junior and senior scholars in the
