"....and it would be incorrect to say that lesbians associate, make love, live with women, for "woman" has meaning only in heterosexual systems of thought and heterosexual economic systems. Lesbians are not women."

    MONIQUE WITTIG

    undergraduate writers scholarship

    2020

    Applications due Wednesday, January 15th, 2020 by 5:00 p.m

    The $1,000 Monique Wittig Writer's Scholarship honors the life and work of Monique Wittig, French Novelist, poet and social theorist. Wittig was a professor at the University of Arizona, Tucson from 1990 to 2003. First published as a novelist, Wittig's fiction revolutionized French literature. Mary McCarthy called her "the best writer anywhere of her generation." Wittig's fiction, as well as theoretical writing, has had fundamental and worldwide impact upon feminist theory and gay and lesbian theory.

    In honor of Wittig, the Monique Wittig Writer's Scholarship will foster innovation in literary forms and the connection between politics and language. It allow University of Arizona undergraduate students to allocate more of their time to writing.

    This scholarship is open to University of Arizona undergraduate writers in all fields including film, theater, poetry, essays and new/mixed media. The winner will be expected to present the work in progress at the awards ceremony in the Spring 2020 semester.
