AMCA is currently accepting submissions for the 2018 Rhonda A. Saad Prize for Best Paper in Modern

and Contemporary Arab Art. Established in 2010, the award aims to recognize and promote excellence in

the field of modern and contemporary Arab art. The prize honors our respected colleague and dear friend,

Rhonda (1979-2010), who was, at the time of her tragic passing, in the process of researching a doctoral

dissertation on modern Palestinian art in the Department of Art History at Northwestern University. Over

the last seven years, the prize has recognized excellence in graduate work completed on a variety of

subjects in a number of disciplines at universities in the U.S. and abroad. This year’s competition is open

to graduate students as well as to recent post-doctoral students who earned a PhD no earlier than 2015.

The prize is offered to a graduate student or recent PhDs working in any discipline whose paper is judged

to provide the most significant contribution to the disciplines of Art History and Middle East Studies.

Submissions must have been produced between June 2016 – December 2017, must not exceed 35 pages

(excluding notes and bibliography), and must not have been previously published or be currently under

consideration for publication.

Submissions are due to by December 15, 2017.

The winner will be announced during the AMCA Members Meeting, held this year at the College Art

Association Annual Meeting at the LA Convention Center, February 21-24 2018. The author of the

winning paper will be awarded 500USD and the winning paper will be considered for publication in the

Arab Studies Journal, pending the standard review process.
