Prix de la Society of Dix-Neuviémistes 2021
SDN PUBLICATION PRIZE
We are delighted to announce that the competition for the SDN Publication Prize 2021 is now open.
One of the chief aims of the Society of Dix-Neuviémistes is to promote and disseminate new linguistic, literary, historical, cultural, philosophical, and comparative perspectives on nineteenth-century French and Francophone studies. The Society awards an annual prize for the best journal article published by a postgraduate student, or an early-career researcher who has not yet entered her or his first permanent full-time post.
The competition is open to postgraduates and early-career members of the Society of any nationality. It includes a cash prize of £300 and mentions on the SDN website and social media. The winner will be invited to receive the award at a reception during the Society’s annual conference.
Eligible candidates are invited to submit peer-reviewed journal articles published during the year 2020. To be eligible to submit an article for the prize, candidates must be either postgraduate students or early-career researchers who have not yet entered her or his first permanent full-time post at the point of submission and be members of the Society of Dix-Neuviémistes.
