Ralph E. Roughton Paper Award
The Ralph Roughton Paper Award was established in 1998 to honor the founding Chairperson of APsaA’s Committee on Gay and Lesbian Issues. In its first decade, it gave formal recognition to outstanding published papers that deepened our psychoanalytic understanding of gay men and lesbians. In 2007, the mission of the Award was changed. In the years that it is awarded, the Ralph Roughton Paper Award is now given to an unpublished manuscript that, in the opinion of the judges, makes an original and outstanding contribution to the psychoanalytic understanding and/or treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered individuals.
The Award carries a cash prize of $500 and the author of the winning paper will be invited to present it at the National Meeting of the American Psychoanalytic Association in New York every January. The winner may submit his/her paper for review by the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association and, if accepted, it will be published as the winner of the Ralph Roughton Paper Award.

4. How local experiences of illness and health are refracted through established modes of discrimination (such as class, race, and gender) and unequal access to new medical technologies; and
5. The extent to which pragmatic and embodied responses to medical science and technology shape concepts of personhood and degrees of political membership.
* The word count should be 6000-8000;
* All authors must be enrolled as a graduate students at the time of submission;
* The paper can be under review at the time of submission, but it cannot be in press or published.
