2021 Book Prize

November 21, 2020

The journal of Early American Literature is seeking nominations for the 2021 Early American Literature Book Prize. The Book Prize is offered in collaboration with the University of North Carolina Press, the Society of Early Americanists, and the MLA’s Forum on Early American Literature. The EAL Book Prize is awarded in even calendar years to a first monograph, and in odd years to a second or subsequent book. 

Do let us know if you have monographs published in 2019 or later which focus on early American literature broadly conceived, and we will consider them for either the 2021 or 2022 Book Prize. The prize is accompanied by a $2,000 cash award.

Please send your nominations by email to EAL's assistant editor at alex.gergely@uky.edu.

The deadline is March 1st, 2021.
