Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies Association Richard Stein Essay Prize
Deadline for Submissions: June 25, 2022
Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) is delighted to announce the call for the 2021 INCS Richard Stein Essay Prize in honor of Richard Stein, Professor Emeritus at the University of Oregon, a principal founder of INCS who provided long and crucial service to developing and nurturing the organization. His books and articles as well as his teaching at Harvard, Berkeley, and Oregon have focused on the connections among Victorian literature, history, visual culture, and other arts. In 1985, he recognized something we now take for granted: the need for a collaborative organization devoted to the interdisciplinary study of the nineteenth century.
