The Science, Technology and Art in International Relations (STAIR) Section of the International Studies Association is seeking nominations for the 2024 Distinguished Scholar Award.

The STAIR Distinguished Scholar Award recognizes senior scholars whose work has made an enduring and ground-breaking contribution to the study of science, technology, and art, in the fields of International Relations and International Political Economy. Nominees for the award will be innovative scholars who have developed new methods, or whose work has fostered new theoretical momentum, at the interface between IR, IPE, and Science, Technology and Art Studies. Due to the uniquely interdisciplinary nature of the STAIR section, nominations will be encouraged especially on behalf of scholars who have, in the course of their careers, produced impactful work at the boundaries of these diverse areas of specialization. They may also be those who have made an outstanding impact in terms of service in these areas, through mentoring, promoting diversity, or in other capacities, such as activism or public engagement. Nominees should either be, or be willing to become, members of the International Studies Association. The winner will be recognized at the ISA Annual Convention in 2024, in San Francisco. 

Nominations may come from any member of the STAIR Section. Nominations (including self-nominations) must include the nominee’s current C.V. and a letter (no more than 1 page), describing the nominee’s contribution to the study of Science, Technology and Art, in International Relations and/or International Political Economy. The nomination should be sent to the section chair, André Barrinha, at , no later than June 14, 2023, with subject heading “Distinguished Scholar Nomination.” 

The recipient of the award will be determined by a committee composed of the Executive Committee of the STAIR Section and an appointed external member. The awardee should be able to travel to the Annual Convention, and attend the STAIR reception. A roundtable featuring the awardee will precede the STAIR reception at the convention.
