La Society for Pirandello Studies (Società per gli studi su Pirandello) ha indetto un premio per saggi dedicati all’autore siciliano. Tema dei saggi dovrà essere la vita e l’opera di Pirandello ma anche il confronto con altri scrittori. Il concorso è riservato a laureandi e laureati ancora interni all’università. I saggi devono essere scritti in inglese e i vincitori saranno pubblicati sulla rivista Pirandello Studies. La scadenza per l’invio dei saggi è il 30 giugno 2013.
Pirandello Essay Prize
The Society for Pirandello Studies invites entries into two essay competitions, one for undergraduates and the other for bona fide postgraduate students.
The life and/or writings of Luigi Pirandello shall constitute at least half of the essay’s subject; e.g. a balanced discussion of Pirandello and one other writer is acceptable.
After initial consultation with a tutor or supervisor the essay must be the entrant’s own unaided work.
The essay must be written in English and must not exceed 3,000 words in length if entered into the undergraduate competition or 5,000 if entered into the postgraduate competition.
The essay must adhere to the style of Pirandello Studies, in which connection pages 3 and 4 of any recent volume of the journal should be consulted.
The essay must be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 June 2013.
By the same date a message must be sent to the same address by the entrant’s tutor or supervisor stating that the entrant is a registered undergraduate or a bona fide postgraduate student and that, as far as the writer is aware, beyond initial consultation the essay is the entrant’s own unaided work.
The entry must indicate for which competition it is intended and include the entrant’s name, the academic institution where they are registered and the name and e-mail address of their tutor/supervisor.
The prize in each competition will be publication of the winning essay in the Society’s journal Pirandello Studies, volume 34 (2014), whose editor may advise the author about modifications prior to publication.
In each competition the judges reserve the right to award no prize if they deem no entry to have reached an appropriate standard.
The results of the competitions will be communicated by electronic mail to all entrants by 1 September 2013.
The judges’ decisions will be final and no correspondence about them will be entered into.
