The Global South Caucus’ Distinguished Scholar Award is given annually in recognition of the recipient’s exceptional and sustained contribution to global south international studies (defined within the context of the ISA), as reflected both in published works as well as policy contributions. If the recipient is able to attend the ISA Annual Convention at which the award is given, s/he will be expected to give a brief address to members, usually at a luncheon event. As you know every year we have honored a distinguished scholar who has contributed significantly to the study of /policy development in the global south. In our first year of operation, we honored the African scholar Professor Ai Mazrui. In our second we honored Dr. Jomo Sundaram from Malaysia, and in our third Dr. Arlene Tickner from Colombia. I am sure that you will agree that the luncheon at which we give our award is now established as a wonderful highlight of the Annual Convention.  It is now time to send in your nominations for 2014. At this time we wish to honor either an Africanist or a Middle East specialist. Please send your nominations to J. Braveboy-Wagner <jbraveboy-wagner@gc.cuny.edu> for consideration by the committee by August 31, 2014. Please see the award website for more information.
