The New Chaucer Society announces a new venture: an Early Career Essay Prize, worth $2,000, to be awarded every two years to the best essay published by an early career scholar in Studies in the Age of Chaucer. The prize will be awarded after publication in SAC, and will be given out at the biennial congress.
The prize is open to any graduate student OR to any scholar within 6 years of their PhD being granted at the time of submission of the essay. Beginning with those already accepted for publication in SAC 38, we will ask for eligible essays to be identified on submission, following which they will automatically be considered for the prize. The first award will be given in 2018 at the Toronto Congress.
