The NCSA 2016 Emerging Scholars Award
The Nineteenth Century Studies Association (NCSA) is pleased to announce the 2016 Emerging Scholars Award. The work of emerging scholars represents the promise and long-term future of interdisciplinary scholarship in 19th-century studies given to an outstanding article or essay published within five years of the author's doctorate or other terminal degree. Entries can be from any discipline focusing on any aspect of the long 19th century (the French Revolution to World War I); they must be published in English or be accompanied by an English translation, and by a single author. Submission of essays that are interdisciplinary is especially encouraged.
Entrants must be within five years of having received a doctorate or other terminal professional degree, and must have less than seven years of experience either in an academic career, or as a post-terminal-degree independent scholar or practicing professional.
Only articles physically published between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014 (even if the citation date of the journal is different) are eligible for the 2016 Emerging Scholar Award. Articles published in any scholarly journal, including on-line journals, or in edited volumes of essays are eligible and may be submitted either by the author or the publisher of a journal, anthology, or volume containing independent essays. In any given year, an applicant may submit more than one article for this award.
The winning article will be selected by a committee of nineteenth-century scholars representing diverse disciplines. Articles submitted to the NCSA Article Prize competition are ineligible for the Emerging Scholars Award.
The winner will receive $500 to be presented at the annual NCSA Conference in Lincoln, Nebraska, April 16-18, 2016.
Deadline for submission is July 1, 2015.
