To submit an entry, scholars should email an abstract of 1200-1500 words (including footnotes) no later than July 27, 2012, to Judy Yi at the following address: Abstracts should reflect original research that will not yet have been published by the time of the Society’s Annual Meeting. The abstract should be accompanied by a separate cover sheet indicating the author’s name, title of the paper, institutional affiliation, and contact information. The abstract itself must not contain any references that identify the author or the author’s institutional affiliation.
