J. Leeds Barroll Dissertation Prize
The J. Leeds Barroll Dissertation Prize recognizes doctoral work with a significant Shakespeare component. Dissertations submitted for the 2016 prize must have been approved between 1 January 2015 and 1 September 2015. The competition is open only to SAA members in good standing.
The deadline for applications is 15 September. The following materials should be sent as e-mail attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org and should exclude the name and affiliation of the applicant:
- a cover letter of no more than two pages, providing an abstract of the dissertation and giving context for the writing sample (below).
- twenty pages from the introduction or any chapter of the applicant’s choice.
These materials will be reviewed by a committee headed by a member of the SAA’s Board of Trustees. A short list of candidates will be asked to submit copies of their full dissertations for further review.
The prize is presented at the SAA’s Annual Luncheon each year.
