The Nineteenth Century Studies Association (NCSA) is pleased to announce
the 2015 Emerging Scholars Award. The work of emerging scholars
represents the promise and long-term future of interdisciplinary
scholarship in 19th-century studies. In recognition of the excellent
publications of this constituency of emerging scholars, this award will
be given to an outstanding article or essay published within five years
of the author's doctorate. Entries can be from any discipline focusing
on any aspect of the long 19th century (the French Revolution to World
War I); they must be published in English or be accompanied by an
English translation, and must be by a single author. Submission of
essays that are interdisciplinary is especially encouraged.
Entrants must be within five years of having received a doctorate or
other terminal professional degree, and must have less than seven years
of experience either in an academic career, or as a post-terminal-degree
independent scholar or practicing professional.
Only articles physically published between September 1, 2013 and August
31, 2014 (even if the citation date of the journal is different) are
eligible for the 2015 Emerging Scholar Award. Articles published in any
scholarly journal, including on-line journals, or in edited volumes of
essays are eligible and may be submitted either by the author or the
publisher of a journal, anthology, or volume containing independent
essays. In any given year, an applicant may submit more than one article
for this award.
The winning article will be selected by a committee of
nineteenth-century scholars representing diverse disciplines. Articles
submitted to the NCSA Article Prize competition are ineligible for the
Emerging Scholars Award.
The winner will receive $500 to be presented at the annual NCSA
Conference in Boston, MA March 26-28, 2015. Prize recipients need not be
members of the NCSA but are encouraged to attend the conference to
receive the award.
Deadline for submission is September 30, 2014.
