Nomination for BARS (British Association of Romantic Studies) First Book Prize

Prize: Honorary award


Awarded biennially for the best first monograph in Romantic Studies, this prize is open to first monographs published between January 2015 and January 2017. In keeping with the remit of the British Association for Romantic Studies, it is designed to encourage and recognise original, ground-breaking and interdisciplinary work in the literature and culture of the period 1780-1830. The prize will be awarded to the value of £250 and will be presented at the BARS biennial conference, ‘Romantic Improvement’, to be held at the University of York in July 2017. (BARS contacted me about the nomination of my monograph A Feminine Enlightenment. The short list will be announced later this year.)
