Call for Entries: Article Prize, Nineteenth Century Studies Association

The Nineteenth Century Studies Association is pleased to announce the Article Prize, which recognizes excellence in scholarly studies from any discipline focusing on any aspect of the long nineteenth century (French Revolution to World War I). The winning article will be selected by a committee of nineteenth-century scholars representing diverse disciplines. The winner will receive $500 to be presented at the 2021 NCSA Conference, Discovery, to be held in Sacramento, California. Applicants are encouraged to attend the conference at which the prize will be awarded.

Entries can be from any discipline, must be published in English or be accompanied by an English translation, and submission of essays that are interdisciplinary is especially encouraged. Articles that appeared in print in a journal or edited collection in 2019 or between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020 are eligible for the 2021 Article Prize; if the date of publication does not fall within that span but the work appeared between those dates, then it is eligible. An essay can only be submitted one time for each prize.

Essays published in online, peer-reviewed journals are considered to be “in print” and are thus eligible. Articles may be submitted by the author or the publisher of a journal, anthology, or volume containing independent essays.

Note: Articles submitted to the 2021 NCSA Emerging Scholars Award competition are ineligible for the Article Prize; one entry per scholar or publisher is allowed annually.
