Among our collection of academic activities, we have involvements with a number of journals, either as partners, editorial board members, or regular contributors. Midland History is one of these, and as Interactive Cultures’ work is sometimes historical in focus, and often about the midlands, you might find this prize of interest.
The Midland History Essay Prize is offered in 2010 for the best essay submitted on an historical subject relating to midland England. Candidates must not, at the date of submission, have published a book or an article in a major journal. The essay must be a genuine work of original research, not hitherto published or accepted for publication, and must reach the required standard. The text should not exceed 8,000 words. Candidates must consult the style sheet of Midland History, available from the Editor and must submit their choice of subject to the editor for approval before sending their essays.
Essays must reach the Editor of Midland History by 31 October 2010. The winning essay, and others judged meritorious, will be published in Midland History.
Applications should be addressed to: The Editor, Midland History, Department of History, University of Birmingham, B15 2TT, United Kingdom
