UCL & I.B. Tauris Publishing Competition
A unique training and publishing opportunity for suitable PhD
students is offered by UCL and I B Tauris in partnership.
Students with an
approved PhD dissertation in the Arts and Humanities, Social and Historical Sciences
and the Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL are invited to compete for the
chance to work with the Visual Culture and Philosophy editor at I B Tauris on presenting
their work for publication.
The competition is open primarily to
students working in the general areas of Visual Culture and Philosophy. However
these areas will be interpreted broadly, and priority will be given to
dissertations which present a novel approach to the disciplines and their
relation to others.
The aim of the scheme is to provide students with experience
of working with a commercial publisher with a wide academic as well as general
readership. Final decision on publication of work will rest with the editorial
board of I.B. Tauris.
The winning dissertation will, in the view of the panel, combine original research with compelling critical writing or other innovative ways of presenting material.
Departments or Schools are invited to select one dissertation each that has been recommended for the PhD in the twelve months up to the closing date in each year.
In the case of a School, more than one dissertation may be considered by agreement with the panel.
Applications should be forwarded by the Department or School. They should consist of to following:
- the dissertation (one hard copy, one electronic file)
- the examiners’ reports
- a brief statement from the candidate giving reasons why the dissertation would be suitable for publication with I.B.Tauris
- a brief CV.
The panel will include Timothy Mathews UCL (chair), Anna Coatman at I.B. Tauris, and members drawn from across the UCL Faculties.
Submissions and queries should be sent to:
Prof Timothy Mathews
Department of French
School of European Languages Culture and Society
The closing date for 2013 was 23 September.
Those shortlisted have been informed and the winner will be announced on the 14th of February 2014.
