Name: Hakluyt Society Essay Prize
Location: London, UK
Application Deadline: November 30, 2018
For the fifth year running, submissions are invited for the annual Hakluyt Society Essay Prize. The award (or more than one, if the judges so decide) has this year seen an increase in value to a maximum total of £1,000. The prize or prizes for 2019 will be presented, if possible, at the Hakluyt Society’s Annual General Meeting in London in June 2019. Winners will also receive a one-year membership of the Hakluyt Society. The Society hopes that the winning essay will be published, either in the Society’s online journal or in a recognised academic journal.
The Society’s scholarly work is concerned with primary accounts of historical voyages and travels and this overlaps significantly with the history of science.
The deadline for submissions is 30 November 2018.
