Deadline October 15, 2015.
The International Society for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture (ISSRNC) announces the ISSRNC Lifetime Achievement Award for outstanding contributions to the study of religion, nature and culture. The award goes to those whose work has a relevance and eloquence that speaks, not just to scholars, but more broadly to the public and to multiple disciplines as well. The contribution can be any medium (e.g., books, films, TV, public speaking), so long as it is based on scholarship about religion, nature and culture.
Nominees need not be ISSRNC members. The ISSRNC Lifetime Achievement Award will be given at the ISSRNC’s 10th anniversary conference, January 14-17, 2016 at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. The award winner will be expected to appear in a plenary session at the meeting, which will feature an interview with the scholar about his/her/their achievements in the study of religion, nature and culture.
Nominations should be sent to [email protected] by October 15, 2015. Please include a curriculum vitae and a letter of nomination of no more than two pages summarizing the nominee’s merit and fit for this award.
