European Journal of Cultural Studies Early Career Scholar Best Paper Award

27.05.2024 13:45 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

We are delighted to announce that the European Journal of Cultural Studies have again kindly agreed to award a best paper prize for early career scholars presenting their research at the ECC in Ljubljana in September 2024. The award has a financial value of 1800 euros and will be presented at the conference. It is intended that the paper will subsequently be published in EJCS.

The award is open to early career researchers who are either doctoral researchers or who have received their doctorate recently. Papers should share the journal’s broad conception of cultural studies as being rooted in lived experience. Entrants must be presenting their paper at the ECC and must be a member of ECREA. Applicants should either be single or first authors and the papers should not have been already published in a scholarly journal.

The submission date for entries is Friday August 30th 4pm CET.

All entries must follow the guidelines for submission to the European Journal of Cultural Studies. Entrants should submit a short biography indicating when they received their doctorate if applicable and confirming their attendance at the ECC conference (no more than 10 lines).
