Hemlow Prize in Burney Studies

The Burney Society invites submissions for the Hemlow Prize, named in
honor 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 2005. Essays should
be sent, by email attachment, to the Chair of the Prize Committee,
