The Trollope Prize
The Department of English, in collaboration with the Hall Center for the Humanities, at The University of Kansas is pleased to sponsor The Trollope Prize, an essay contest open to undergraduate and graduate students writing about the works of Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope.
Trollope and His World
Essays are invited on the topic of "Trollope and His World." Submissions may include essays focusing exclusively on the works of Anthony Trollope; comparative essays on Trollope and other writers; essays examining Trollope's work and career in the larger context of Victorian history, culture and society; historical or literary essays on topics central to Trollope's work and illuminated by his work; or essays on the reception of Trollope's work or on his larger cultural influence.
The Trollope Prize is partnering with The Fortnightly Review to publish the winner of the 2012 graduate essay competition. The Fortnightly Review will also be contributing a modest additional honorarium to the winner of the graduate competition. For more on The Fortnightly Review, which is an electronic revival of the magazine originally established by Anthony Trollope in 1865, please visit The Fortnightly Review website.
The Trollope Prize was established by an anonymous benefactor to encourage the reading, study, and teaching of Trollope's novels. The Prize is administered by the English department, with support from the Hall Center for the Humanities at The University of Kansas.
The deadline for submissions is 1 June 2012.
