Applications for the Amelia Bloomer Project are currently open. Members of the committee are expected to be members of the American Library Association, are expected to do a significant amount of committee reading and participation year-round, and must be able to attend ALA Midwinter to participate in committee deliberations.
The 2019 committee year will begin on March 1, 2018.
Applications are available as a Google Doc: 2019 Amelia Bloomer Project Application. To apply, you will need to make a copy of the document (or download it in the format of your choice). Completed applications should be submitted as a Google Doc or Word file to ameliabloomerproject at gmail dot com.
Questions may be sent to the co-chairs at ameliabloomerproject at gmail dot com. (The Amelia Bloomer Project Policies & Procedures and Book Criteria are available on our website and do provide more information about the committee and its work. Do note that our Criteria are currently under revision to better reflect the work of a feminist committee in 2018.)
Applications will be accepted from February 15, 2018, until midnight Pacific time on Thursday, February 22, 2018. (This is the midnight between Thursday and Friday.) We understand that this is a short deadline and will take that into consideration when reading your answers!
