Review English Studies Essay Prize

The Department has been able to establish a small Graduate Research Support Fund to provide MA by research and MPhil/Ph D students with some limited support towards costs connected with specific research projects, such as visits to libraries, travel to conferences or cost of microfilm. Priority will be given to first time applicants and those not in receipt of AHRC or other full funding.

Applications should be sent to the Chair of Graduate Studies, currently Dr Claire Chambers, and should include a detailed description of the project involved, a precise estimate of costs, and a confidential letter of support from the supervisor. Applications must be made before funds are needed, not after they have been spent.

An annual prize of £50 will be awarded for the best essay by a research student aimed at publication.

The prize is named after Professor John Barrell who inspired its creation.

The Beckett Summer School offers a full, week-long programme of cultural events, lectures and seminars by leading scholars every summer. This award consists of a fee-waiver from Trinity and an award for travel costs from the Leavis Fund.

The successful applicant will be responsible for covering their accommodation costs.

The winner of the Essay Prize in 2015 was Douglas Battersby for his article “‘To have that on the imagination!

’: Beckett and the Subjectivities of Literary Fiction.” This has been accepted by the editors of a book collection titled The Department is affiliated to the University of California Dickens Project, which runs the annual week-long ‘Dickens Universe’ at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The Dickens Project is a worldwide consortium of leading universities and the ‘Universe’ attracts a wide range of leading scholars and postgraduate students in Victorian literature from the US, UK and Australia. In 2016, there will be an opportunity for a York postgraduate student to attend the conference, which will take place at the UCSC campus, 30 July-6 August 2016.

The department will cover transport and accommodation costs.
