2010 Walker Cowen Manuscript Prize Competition in Eighteenth-Century Studies
We invite submissions for the Walker Cowen Memorial Prize. The prize is
awarded to the author of a scholarly book-length manuscript in
eighteenth-century studies, including the Americas and the Atlantic
world. Submissions may be in history (including history of science),
literature, philosophy, or the arts. The competition is held annually.
The winner of the Cowen Prize will receive a $5,000 award and will be
offered an advance publishing contract by the University of Virginia
Press. The prize honors the late Walker Cowen, second Director of the
Press from 1969 until his death in 1987.
