EASLCE Prize in European Ecocriticism
EASLCE Prize for Best Graduate Student Essay in European Ecocriticism
The European Association for the Study of Literature, Culture, and the Environment (EASLCE) sponsors a prize for the Best Graduate Student Essay in European Ecocriticism. It consists in a grant of 400 Euros to help cover the costs of attending the next EASLCE conference (at the Free University of Brussels, Belgium, in October 2016), as well as, following a process of peer-reviewing, publication of the prize-winning essay in our journal Ecozon@. All student members of EASLCE who are currently enrolled in an M.A. or Ph.D. program are eligible. The essay must be previously unpublished. Unless the author is enrolled at a European university, the essay must engage explicitly with European literature or ecocritical theory. It must be written in English, following the author guidelines of Ecozon@ (available at www.ecozona.eu).
Deadline for submission is July 31st, 2016. The winner will be announced at the Brussels Conference and on the EASLCE webpage.
Please email submissions by July 31st, 2016 to the selection committee at
