The WSA is pleased to announce the recipients of the SCW6 student travel awards (in alphabetical order): Eve Bennett, Hélène Frohard-Dourlent, and Derrick King. Congratulations!
At this year’s conference, the WSA will be holding a silent auction to raise funds for student travel awards. We have received many great donations (e.g., a “Grr Argh” cutting board, Serenity ice cube tray, and Firefly cookie cutters), but there is room for more. If you are a Whedon fan, Whedon scholar-fan, or Joss Whedon himself, we would appreciate your donations of Whedon-related merchandise or crafts, including anything autographed by the man or his crew. If you would like to donate, please contact the WSA treasurer, Cynthia Burkhead, at email@example.com. Thanks to Cynthia and Sarah Michael for organizing this activity.
The Whedon Studies Association will provide three student awards of $750.00 to help defray conference and travel expenses. The current officers and current program chairs will select the recipients based on their proposals and other factors where relevant, such as attendance at prior conferences and/or publications. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30, 2014, if you wish to be considered for one of the awards. Students must be registered for the conference before submitting their names for consideration.
