FYI: LAGB Launches Anna Siewierska Essay Prize for 2013
The Anna Siewierska Prize 2013
The Linguistics Association of Great Britain (LAGB) intends to offer the Anna Siewierska Prize 2013 for the best essay by a student or recent graduate on a topic in linguistics.
Entrants must be both:
(a) current PhD students or recent graduates within one year of the award of their PhD (viva date) on the submission deadline; and
(b) members of the Association (an application for membership may be included with the submission).
Essays should be submitted to the President, Professor Ad Neeleman (firstname.lastname@example.org), by the closing date, 1 November 2013. Entrants should also state their current course (university and name of supervisor, and, in the case of recent graduates, the date of their PhD viva).
Submissions must be written in English. They should not exceed 10,000 words, including tables, figures, notes, appendices, references, etc., and may be shorter. Jointly authored submissions are acceptable, provided that all authors meet the criteria above.
The value of the prize is £500. Where there is more than one winner, it will be shared equally been the winners. The committee reserves the right not to award the prize if it feels that none of the submissions reach the necessary standard.
The winning entry will be posted on the LAGB’s website. If it has not previously been published or submitted to another journal, it will be forwarded by the committee with their endorsement to the Journal of Linguistics. However, no guarantee of publication in the Journal of Linguistics can be given, and the winning submission will be subject to the journal’s normal reviewing procedures.
