The Early English Books Online (EEBO) Text Creation Partnership and ProQuest Information and Learning are once again sponsoring an essay competition for undergraduate students.
The EEBO In Undergraduate Studies Essay Competition Committee is seeking undergraduate research papers that rely on research conducted via the Early English Books Online collection of primary texts. The panel of judges consists of scholars, librarians, and academic contributors to EEBO. Essays may reflect the approach of any number of academic disciplines – history, literary studies, philosophy, anthropology, religious studies, and more – or they may be interdisciplinary in nature. The chief requirement is that each paper draws substantial evidence from the works included in EEBO.
EEBO contains page images of 125,000 books listed in the Pollard and Redgrave, Wing, and Thomason Tracts catalogs. With its substantial coverage of printed material found in England between 1473 and 1700, EEBO provides rich research possibilities for students interested in a wide variety of topics in early modern studies.
