Journal of Victorian Culture Essay Prize
From the JVC Editors:
‘We are pleased to announce the next competition. The aim of the JVC Essay Prize is to promote scholarship among postgraduate research students working on the Victorian period in any discipline in the UK and abroad. The essay, which must be no longer than 7000 words in length (including footnotes), may be on any aspect of Victorian culture appropriate for the scope of the journal (this embraces literature and history, including cultural, intellectual, social, political, economic and religious history; the history of music, science, technology, medicine, theatre and visual culture; historical geography). The editorial board welcomes essays that adopt an interdisciplinary approach to their subject matter. However, the board also encourages essays which, while focusing on one sub-discipline, reflect on the implications of their argument for other Victorian studies constituencies. Authors should keep in mind this question: how is this research of interest to other Victorianists?’
The prize includes publication of the winning essay in JVC, £100 cash prize, and a free year’s subscription to JVC.
Closing date for submissions to the Editor: 30 June 2011
