CFP: Bertrand Russell Society Student Paper Prize

Submission deadline: March 31, 2024


Each year, the Bertrand Russell Society accepts submissions for its Student Paper Prize, which is awarded annually to the best new paper in Russell studies. Papers may be submitted by graduate or undergraduate students. They should deal with some aspect of Russell’s life, work, or influence, and be of suitable length for presentation at the annual meeting.

The award includes a $200 cash prize, a complimentary first-year membership in the Society, and free registration and lodging at the Society’s annual meeting, where the prize is presented. The Society does not award a Student Paper Prize every year, but only in years where there is a sufficiently meritorious paper. Beginning in 1993, the Student Paper Prize replaced the Society’s Doctoral and Masters Grants.

Student Paper Prize submissions should be emailed with (1) an anonymized paper and (2) a cover page including the paper’s title and abstract, author’s name, email address, and institutional affiliation. Submissions should be emailed to Adam Stromme (chair of the committee) at brssocsecretary [at] gmail [dot] com. Submissions for the 2024 Student Paper Prize are due Sunday, March 31st, 2024.
