For scholars of 18th-19th century 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 BWWA Board 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 biennial 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.
Please submit nominating letters to the awards committee via our Contact Form.
