Guidelines and Eligibility
Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) invites nominations for its annual essay prize. The $500 award recognizes excellence in interdisciplinary scholarship on any nineteenth-century topic. The committee encourages members of INCS to nominate an essay written by a current member of INCS or to submit their own work. Articles that appeared in print in a journal or an edited collection in 2014 are eligible; if the date of publication is not 2014, but the essay appeared in 2014, it is eligible. Current and recent INCS board members are not eligible for this contest.
The winning essay will be announced at the 2015 INCS conference, sponsored by Georgia Tech University in Atlanta, from April 16-19, 2015. The winner will be invited to put together a panel for the 2016 INCS conference.
Please send an electronic copy of the nominated essay (PDF preferred) to Professor Lynn Voskuil (University of Houston) at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than January 20, 2015. For more details about the essay competition, the conference, or the organization, we invite you to visit the INCS website: http://www3.nd.edu/~incshp/. Specific questions about the 2014 essay contest may be directed to Lynn Voskuil at email@example.com.
