The NACBS is pleased to announce a new article prize in honor of Judith R. Walkowitz, made possible by her colleagues and former students. A leading scholar of British social and cultural history, particularly in relation to issues of gender and sexuality, Professor Walkowitz has played a significant role in shaping the field of British Studies and the community of scholars who participate in the endeavor. The Judith R. Walkowitz Article Prize will be awarded annually for the best published article on issues relating to gender and sexuality in British culture. Prize submissions (deadline: May 1) are now open to scholars resident in North America working in any time period and in any discipline in British Studies, and carries a cash award of $150. The inaugural 2018 prize will be awarded to an article published during the calendar year 2017, and announced at the 2018 annual meeting.
