ISTR New Scholars Essay Prize: deadline for Submissions 20 January 2017
Irish Society for Theatre Research
New Scholars Prize 2017
Call for Papers
ISTR runs an annual essay competition for New Scholars. There is no set theme for this competition; rather, candidates are encouraged to submit work drawing on their current research in the area of theatre, drama or performance. New research, or essays developed from papers presented at the preceding conference are welcome. The New Scholars Prize is awarded to the best essay, judged on originality, coherence and rigour.
Essays must be between 4 000 – 6 000 words (excluding bibliography) and should not be published or submitted for publication in advance of the award announcement. They will be judged anonymously; hence, the author’s name must not appear anywhere in the essay itself. All submissions must be accompanied by a cover sheet, must be presented with attention to correct spelling and stylistics and referenced according to a standard norm (i.e. MLA or Chicago style). Candidates should submit entries in English in MS Word format to the Convenor of the Prize Committee, Dr Ondřej Pilný at email@example.com
Eligibility: A New Scholar is defined as a graduate student, post-doctoral researcher whose PhD has been completed less than three years ago, or a researcher without a PhD who has been in an academic post for less than three years. Membership of ISTR is not necessary to enter the competition, but prize winners will need to join ISTR to attend the conference where the prize will be awarded.
Deadline: 20 January 2017.
The judges for the New Scholars Prizes in 2017 are Dr Ondřej Pilný, Charles University, Prague; Dr Miriam Haughton, NUI Galway; and Dr Aoife McGrath, Queen’s University Belfast. The best three essays will be shortlisted for the Prize, and the final Guest Adjudicator will select the winner. The final adjudicator for 2017 will be Dr Cathy Leeney. Previous final adjudicators included Prof. Marvin Carlson, Prof. Helen Burke, Prof. Lionel Pilkington, Prof. Chris Morash, and Prof. Mária Kurdi.
Results of the competition will be announced at the next ISTR conference at the University of Nottingham on 28-29 April 2017. The prize-winners are expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.
