British Women Writers Association

For scholars of 18th-19th century British women writers

Call for Nominations: Award for Contributions to the Study of British Women Writers

As part of the organization’s ongoing mission to support, encourage, and recognize the important work being done on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British women writers, the board of the BWWA has created an award to recognize outstanding contributions to the study of British women writers.  The award seeks to acknowledge, honor, and celebrate the various ways in which the recipient has contributed to the study of British women writers through teaching, mentoring, service, and scholarship.

This award—called the Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century British Women Writers Association Award for Contributions to the Study of British Women Writers—will be given to the important individuals in our field in order to show our deep gratitude for their example and inspiration to all scholars.

We are currently soliciting nomination for the 2017 award to be presented at the next annual conference at the University of North Carolina.  Please submit nominating letters (up to two pages) giving specific details as the nominee’s contributions to the study of British women writers to the awards committee in care of Troy J. Bassett (bassettt@ipfw.edu) by 31 January 2017.
