This morning In The Middle posted an announcement for the biennial Michael Camille Essay Prize. This essay competition is open to students currently in Master’s or Doctoral programs as well as to early career scholars who are within 5 years of receiving their Ph.D. Essays may be submitted from any discipline.
Eileen Joy, of In The Middle, writes “The prize will be for the best short essay (4,000-6,000 words), on a variable theme, that brings the medieval and the modern into productive critical relation.” The theme for this year’s competition is Medievalism and the Monsters of Modernity.
For more information on the prize, please visit In The Middle’s full post. The deadline for submission is June 30, 2012. The winner will be announced at the 2nd Biennial Meeting of the BABEL Working Group in September. Submissions may be sent as a Word document in Chicago format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
