Open Call for the Zagorka Golubović Early Career Engaged Research Award 2021
Deadline: June 30, 2021The Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory is calling for applications for the annual Zagorka Golubović Early Career Engaged Research Award in 2021.
The award is for a paper published in the past year in Serbian (Bosnian, Croatian, Montenegrin) or English in a scientific journal or an edited volume. Papers that approach regional (Southeast Europe) or broader social problems in an engaging way will be taken into consideration. The papers should be original scientific articles in the social sciences and humanities. Both empirical and purely theoretical research works are eligible.
The award will be given for engaged scientific work by junior researchers: master’s degree students, doctoral students, or those who have obtained their doctoral degree within the past five years.
Submitted papers should:
- Serve as an invitation for others to join the process of reflecting and intervening in social reality – to encourage thinking and action by focusing on themes and methods that challenge dominant narratives;
- Have a critical intention to engage – an effort to translate scientific insights into guidelines for operationalization, that is, to demonstrate a form of thought that strives to become action;
- Strive to inspire a significant number of social actors to think about institutional reality and challenge it, which requires a line of argument intelligible to a broader audience, but not at the expense of rigor and quality of scientific insights. Thus, the papers should be written using engaging language.
Applications should contain the original scientific article, accompanied by a separate document which includes information about the author(s) – name, date of birth, affiliation and address, as well as a brief explanation of how the submitted paper meets the set criteria. The deadline for submission is June 30, 2021.
The awarded paper will be published in the Institute’s journals – Philosophy and Society – translated into English if published in Serbian, or Kritika – translated into Serbian if published in English. The Award fund for 2020 is 500 EUR and will be bestowed in October 2021.
Applications should be submitted electronically to: [email protected], with the subject line: Application for the Zagorka Golubović Award Competition.
Application deadline is June 30
