The Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS) opens its call for nominations for its Distinguished Fellow Award for the year 2017.
This award is conferred to members and individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to CALACS and whose actions have contributed to furthering its Vision and Mission (http://www.can-latam.org/about).
The award, which does not carry any special benefits other than the distinction itself, will be conferred in a ceremony at the 2017 CALACS congress at the University of Guelph (June 3-4, 2017). Information about the CALACS Congress is available at: https://www.can-latam.org/congress/2017/home.
Ideally the recipient will be someone who already plans to attend the Congress. If you know this to be the case please indicate this in the letter of nomination (the call for proposals deadline for the Congress itself is December 30, 2016). Nominations received will be kept on file for future years.
How to make a nomination for the Distinguished Fellow Award:
The following reference materials will be evaluated for considering candidates for the award:
* letter(s) of nomination
* positions held by nominees within CALACS in the past, in which capacity and for how long (for example on the Association’s Board of Directors or with the journal- CJLACS)
