WSCA Awards

Each year, the Working-Class Studies Association (WCSA) issues a number of awards to recognize the best new work in the field of Working-Class Studies. The awards are named for people who represent a working-class ethos through their words and creations such as Studs Terkel, CLR James, John Russo & Sherry Linkon, and Tillie Olsen. Read about all of our awards and previous awardees here.

The review process is organized by the past-president of the WCSA, and submissions are judged by a panel of three readers for each of the categories of awards.

You can view the award categories, find out how to make a nomination, and find judges information on the Call for Awards tab. Please help us get the word out to recognize new work in our growing field!
