The Rutledge Prize 2013: For Graduate Students Giving Papers at the SCLA Conference

Article excerpt

Each year the SCLA offers a prize of $250 for the most promising work presented at its annual conference by a graduate student. The essay is also considered for publication in The Comparatist.

You may submit a paper for consideration for this award by sending it as an email attachment to the SCLA vice president. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2015 with the prizewinner to be announced in the 2015 issue of The Comparatist. Send to: Prof. Adelheid Eubanks, aeubanks@jcsu.edu.

Since conference papers are often shortened from longer projects, students are encouraged to submit an essay-length version of their work that would be suitable for journal publication (no longer than 7,500 words). If publishable, prize essays normally appear in the next issue after the official announcement (i.e., a year and a half after the conference presentation), thus allowing ample time for feedback and advice from the editor.
