The Philip Roth Society invites submissions from graduates working on any aspect of the work of Philip Roth for consideration for the Siegel/McDaniel Award. The Siegel/McDaniel Award is an annual prize awarded in recognition of high-quality work by graduate students in the field of Roth studies written in the past year (ending June 1).
We recommend that faculty urge strong students to submit papers and welcome submissions from members and non-members of the Society alike.
Eligible graduate students should submit a clean copy of their 10-15 page essay, double-spaced, with 12 point Times New Roman font to David Brauner, Philip Roth Society Program Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org
The annual deadline is September 1.
The winner of the Siegel/McDaniel Award receives:
1) a $250 cash award;
2) a complimentary membership renewal that includes the journal option for the following year;
3) an opportunity to work with the editor of Philip Roth Studies to publish an expanded version of the essay.
The executive board members of the Philip Roth Society will evaluate all entries and notify entrants of their decision by October 1 of the same year.
This award is given in honor of the work of Ben Siegel and John McDaniel, two of the earliest and most influential Roth scholars in the history of American letters.
