GSA Memorial Prize

Due Date: 01-15-2022

In 2001, the George Sand Association (GSA) created the Janis M. Glasgow Memorial Prize to honor the memory of Janis Glasgow, whose 1966 dissertation, “Psychological Realism in George Sand’s Early Novels,” represents one of the first scholarly studies of Sand in North America. In 2004, the GSA voted to change the name of the award to the GSA Memorial Prize to honor all pioneering Sand scholars now deceased. Previous recipients are: Susan J. White (2004); Marie-Cécile Levet (2008); tied for first place, Rachel Corkle, Anne Marcoline, and Manon Mathias (2013); Marilyn Mallia (2015); Amélie Calderone (2017); and Rebecca Sugden (2019). The next prize will recognize the best dissertation on George Sand defended in the years 2019, 2020, or 2021. Any doctoral dissertation, in English or in French, in whole or in part on Sand may be submitted to the prize committee by the 15 January deadline. To submit work for consideration, please send, by no later than 15 January 2022, an abstract of the dissertation (generally 1–3 pages), the table of contents, a curriculum vitae, and a letter of recommendation from the dissertation adviser to Annabelle Rea ( Finalists may be asked to submit the entire dissertation at a later date.
