About the prize
The Editor in Chief, the Editorial Board and the Publisher of the Journal of Gender Studies have discussed a fitting way of recognizing the substantial contribution made by Blu Tirohl to the Journal and the wider world of gender studies and feminism. Blu Tirohl, who has contributed to the development and growth of the Journal for more than two decades, decided to step down from the editorial helm of the Journal in 2021. We have settled on the Blu Tirohl Prize which will be given annually to an author whose work particularly addresses Blu’s broad interests and passions: diversity, inclusion, intersectionality and victimization. The award recognizes Blu’s enormous contribution to the development of the Journal and to the study of diversity, inclusion, intersectionality or victimization. This is an annual prize awarded to the author/s of the article judged as the most outstanding publication in the Journal during the previous volume addressing one or more of the areas highlighted above. Inaugural winners will be announced in October 2022.
Journal articles published in the Journal volume are automatically considered for the award.
Only peer-reviewed journal articles are eligible for this prize.
Eligible journal articles must particularly address diversity, inclusion, intersectionality or victimization.
To be considered for the award, authors will need to adhere to the requirements of publishing ethics and best practice.
Entries will be shortlisted by the Editors, and the winning article will be judged by Blu Tirohl. In the rare event that Blu Tirohl is unavailable, the Editor in Chief of the Journal will make the final decision.
Terms and conditions:
Where there are multiple winning articles, the Prize will be split equally between all authors of the winning articles.
The prize is £250.
The winning article will be made Free to View for six months.
The JGS editorial team and the Publisher will arrange social media promotion via the Journal and relevant Routledge/Taylor & Francis social media channels and on the Journal’s website on Taylor Francis Online.
The author(s) will have the opportunity to promote their research featured in the winning article either in a podcast or in an interview with one of the editors.
