The deadline to nominate an essay for the Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) 2016 Essay Prize is fast approaching. The $500 award recognizes excellence in interdisciplinary scholarship on any nineteenth-century topic.
Please send an electronic copy of the nominated essay (PDF preferred) to Professor George Robb, William Paterson University, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than January 20, 2017; in the case of an essay that appeared only online, a durable link is acceptable in lieu of a PDF. For more details about the essay competition, the conference, or the organization, please visit the INCS website: http://www.incsscholars.org.
The winning essay will be announced at the 2017 INCS conference, hosted by Muhlenberg College, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from March 16-19, 2017. The winner will be invited to assemble a panel for the 2018 INCS conference in San Francisco.
Articles that appeared in print in a journal or an edited collection in 2016 are eligible. If the date of publication is not 2016, but the essay appeared in 2016, it is eligible. Essays published in online, peer-reviewed journals are considered to be “in print” and are thus eligible. We encourage INCS members to nominate essays written by other INCS members or to submit their own work. To be eligible for the prize, authors must be current members of INCS. Potential contestants may join INCS for the purpose of competing. Current and recent INCS board members are not eligible for this contest.
Specific questions about the 2016 essay contest may be directed to George Robb at email@example.com.
