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 Asheville, North Carolina, 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.
Send electronic PDF submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org, Chair of the Emerging Scholars Award, Professor Paul Croce, Department of History, Stetson University. If necessary, three off-prints or photocopies of published articles/essays may be mailed to the committee chair. Please note that applicants must verify date of actual publication for eligibility and provide an email address so that receipt of their submissions may be acknowledged.
