MA Disseration Prize

21 July 2011

The Arts and Humanites Faculty MA Dissertation Prize, worth £200 to the winner, is offered to the best MA dissertation each year in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities on a comparative topic. The comparative is understood in its widest sense, and eligible dissertations may include discussion of texts by different authors drawn either for the same subject area or different ones, as well as discussion of verbal, visual, filmic and material artefacts in any combination.

Dissertations will be nominated for the prize by the following MA Examiners’ Boards (1 dissertation per Board):

MA in Comparative Literature
MA in Translation Studies
MA in Film Studies
MA in Gender Studies
MA in Language Culture and History
MA Issues in Modern Culture
MAs in the Centre for European Studies

The final decision will be made by the judges solely on the basis of the comparative criterion and inherent excellence.

The panel of judges will be comprised of:
Dr Stephanie Bird, A&H Graduate Tutor
Professor Stephen Hart, Director  of Research, SELCS
Professor Timothy Mathews (chair)
