Hemlow Prize in Burney Studies
 
The Burney Society invites submissions for the Hemlow Prize in Burney Studies,
named in honour of the late Joyce Hemlow, Greenshields Professor of English at
McGill University, whose biography of Frances Burney and edition of her
journals and letters are among the foundational works of eighteenth-century
literary scholarship.
 
The Hemlow Prize will be awarded to the best essay written by a graduate
student on any aspect of the life or writings of Frances Burney. The essay,
which can be up to 6,000 words, should make a substantial contribution to
Burney scholarship. The judges will take into consideration the essay's
originality, coherence, use of source material, awareness of other work in the
field, and documentation. The winning essay will be published in the Burney
Journal and the recipient will receive an award of US $250, as well as a
year's membership in the Burney Society.

The Hemlow Prize will be awarded in October 2007. Essays should be sent,
by email attachment, to the Chair of the Prize Committee, Audrey Bilger, Associate Professor of Literature, Claremont McKenna College, abilger_at_cmc.edu. Submissions must be received by June 1, 2007.
