Modern Language Association Prize for Independent Scholars. Competition in 2004 for Books Published in 2003. To recognize and further encourage the achievements and contributions of independent scholars, the Modern Language Association invites authors to compete for the twentieth annual MLA Prize for Independent Scholars, to be awarded for a distinguished scholarly book published in 2003 in the field of English or another modern language or literature. Authors who are not enrolled in a program leading to an academic degree and did not hold a tenured, tenure-accruing, or tenure-track position in a postsecondary educational institution at the time of publication of the book are eligible. Normally, part-time instructors and adjunct faculty members are eligible to compete for the prize. Authors of submitted books need not be members of the association. The award, which consists of $1,000, a certificate, and a one-year membership in the association, will be presented to the winning author at the association's annual convention in December 2004. To enter a book into the competition, authors or publishers should send six copies and a completed application form to the MLA Prize for Independent Scholars, Modern Language Association, 26 Broadway, 3rd floor, New York, NY 10004-1789. Entries must be received by 1 May 2004. Publishers may enter more than one rifle, but no book may compete for more than one MLA prize. Shipping labels should indicate the names of the prizes for which the books are competing. For further information, or to obtain copies of the application form, call or write the Office of Special Projects, Modern Language Association (646 576-5141; awards@mla.org).
