The recipient of the 2017 Outstanding Scholarly Publication Award is Erin Finzer for her article “Mother Earth, Earth Mother: Gabriela Mistral as an Early Eco-Feminist” published in the June 2015 issue of Hispania [98.2: 243–51].


The members of the Selection Committee had the following comments about this article: This noteworthy article brings to our attention little known information about the significant role that Nobel Prize winner Gabriela Mistral had as a conservationist along with other female activists in the early twentieth century. Finzer’s study uncovers how Mistral’s use of nature tropes from her poetry also served the poet as an avenue of advocacy in her journalistic work, thus creating a pioneering environmental conservation effort that had roots in literature. Finzer brings out fascinating facts about Mistral’s influential role in the Pan-American Conservation movement and the crucial role of women in its inception. The article carefully investigates and outlines how Mistral’s pioneering efforts created “an alternate sphere for women’s voices” which paved the way for what we know today as ecofeminism. The article is well written and combines a sophisticated analytical methodology with an elegant style.
