The Cultural Studies Program is pleased to accept yearly submissions for the Brantlinger-Naremore Prize for best graduate essay in Cultural Studies. Submissions must be written in either the Spring or Fall semester of one calendar year (e.g. the 2022 Essay Prize will be offered for essays written in Spring 22 or Fall 22).
The Brantlinger-Naremore Prize recognizes an essay written by a graduate student that offers a serious engagement with issues in the field of Cultural Studies either at the theoretical level or by modeling analyses of cultural artifacts and processes. Essays that have been written for joint-listed cultural studies graduate classes are eligible for submission.
First prize consists of a $500 award, and a second prize consists of a $300 award (to be paid to students’ bursar account).
Submissions open for the yearly award in early Spring semester, and can be submitted online. More information will be made available as the date approaches, but you are welcome to reach out for details to the Cultural Studies Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
