MGSA Best Graduate Student Essay
Deadline: April 1st 2013
The Modern Greek Studies Association (MGSA) sponsors a prize for the Best Graduate Student Essay Prize on a Greek subject. The prize is awarded on a biennial schedule to coincide with the Association's Symposium. The prize consists of a cash award of and reimbursement to the prize-winner for expenses (travel and accommodations) paid out to attend the Association's Symposium. The prize winner will also be given a free one-year membership, or one-year renewal of membership, to the Association.
All disciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences compete together. Eligibility for the prize includes all graduate students enrolled in any M.A. or Ph.D. program in a North American institution.
The length of submission should be between 6000 and 9000 words (double-spaced) and must be primarily in the English language and prepared for anonymous evaluation. If possible, papers should follow the format for documentation as set out in The Journal of Modern Greek Studies. The subject matter of submissions must deal wholly or in part with the post-Byzantine Greek world -- including Greek diasporas.
The next deadline for receipt of submissions is April 1, 2013. For submissions, send one pdf of the author's cover sheet (with name, title of essay, email address and regular mailing address) and another pdf with the anonymous essay to mgsa.org at gmail.com<mailto:mgsa.org at gmail.com?subject=Best%20Graduate%20Student%20Essay%20Prize%20Submission>.
The committee charged with reviewing submissions and deciding the prize winner will be selected by the MGSA Graduate Studies Committee and will include representatives from multiple disciplines and with the participation of the Editor, or an Associate Editor, of the Journal of Modern Greek Studies. It is our expectation that the winning submission will be published in the Journal of Modern Greek Studies, but only after it has successfully passed the journal's peer review process. Other entries that receive honorable mention will also be proposed for the Journal of Modern Greek Studies peer review.
