RWS Postgraduate Essay Competition
The Raymond Williams Society (http://www.raymondwilliams.co.uk/) is holding its second postgraduate student essay competition for work grounded in the tradition of cultural materialism. The aim is to encourage a new generation of scholars in this area, especially those who are engaged in discourses and approaches arising from the work of Raymond Williams.
The competition is open to anyone studying for a higher degree (masters or doctoral) in the UK or abroad, either on course, or who graduated no earlier than 31 July 2009. The prize for the winning entry is £100 GBP, and a year's subscription to the Society. The winning essay will also be considered for publication in a future issue of our peer-reviewed journal Key Words: A Journal of Cultural Materialism.
Entries should be between 5-7000 words long, including endnotes (which should normally be kept to a minimum). Entries must follow the Keywords Style Notes for contributors.
Entries must be submitted electronically. Please send your submission to the Contributions Editor of Key Words, Catherine Clay, firstname.lastname@example.org, accompanied by a brief coversheet with the following details, and ask your supervisor to send us an email confirming your status:
