Call for Nominations: Colby Scholarly Book Prize (12/1/2011)

The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals is pleased to announce the 2011 competition for the annual Robert and Vineta Colby Scholarly Book Prize, honoring the scholarly book that most advances the understanding of the nineteenth-century British newspaper and/or periodical press. All books exploring periodicals of the period are eligible (including single-author monographs, edited collections, and editions) so long as they have an official publication date of 2011.

The winner will receive a monetary award of up to $2,000, and will be invited to speak at the RSVP conference at The University of Texas at Austin (September 14-5, 2012). The prize is made possible by a generous gift in honor of Robert and Vineta Colby, long and devoted members of RSVP and major scholars in the field of Victorian periodicals.

To nominate a book please email Joanne Shattock (ejs4@le.ac.uk) by December 1, 2011. You or your press will be asked to supply the committee with five copies of the book by the beginning of January, 2012. Self-nominations are welcome.
