Printing Historical Society Prize for New Scholarship
Thursday, October 1
The Society is pleased to announce the ‘Printing Historical Society Prize for New Scholarship’, a competition for a new article on any printing-historical subject, suitable for the Society’s Journal.
Scholars and practitioners who have worked in the field for no more than seven years are invited to submit an original article on any printing-historical subject (see Notes for contributors). The article should be between 4,000 and 8,000 words, and not previously published. Deadline 1 October 2020 (and annually thereafter).
The article judged best will be awarded the title ‘Printing Historical Society Prize for New Scholarship’ for that year, a purse of £500, membership of the Society for that year, and publication in the Society’s Journal (and digitally on the Society’s website, and other platforms as appropriate), subject to the usual processes of peer-review. The Society reserves the right not to make an award if no articles of suitable quality are received.
Applicants for the Prize should send their article (in Word format), with a short covering-letter, outlining their research and status as a student, early-career researcher, independent scholar, librarian, printer, printmaker etc. new to printing history, to the Journal Editor by the deadline specified.
The Journal Editor (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be happy to answer queries and discuss possible subjects and approaches for submissions.
