The Donald Cameron Watt Prize
To be awarded annually by the Transatlantic Studies Association for the best paper at its annual conference by an early career scholar.
Judging will be based solely on the written versions of the papers submitted, which may not necessarily be the delivery versions. Entries should be submitted by 30 April, preceding the annual conference in July. This is the final deadline and no late entries can be accepted. The full version of the paper must be submitted by this date. The delivery of the paper is not part of the assessment but candidates for the award must attend and deliver the paper at the conference.
The prize for the best paper will be awarded at the conference dinner. In addition, the paper will automatically be sent out for refereeing for publication in the Journal of Transatlantic Studies providing that it has not been submitted elsewhere.
Early career scholar is defined as:
a PhD student;
anyone within 3 years of having been awarded a PhD;
anyone who has a full-time appointment at a recognised higher education institution, but has not held the post for more than 3 years and does not fall into the doctoral category.
Papers should be submitted to Tony McCulloch on or before 30 April 2010 for the annual conference in July 2010
