The John M. Wallace Award

Andrew Marvell Society
South-Central Renaissance Conference
The John M. Wallace Award

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the Andrew Marvell Society is delighted to be able to offer the first annual John M. Wallace award for the best paper on Andrew Marvell by an early career scholar presented at the annual meeting of the South-Central Renaissance Conference, “Exploring the Renaissance.”

The award recognizes the signal contribution to Marvell studies of John M. Wallace (1928-93), Professor of English at the University of Chicago and author of the ground-breaking interdisciplinary work, Destiny his Choice: The Loyalism of Andrew Marvell (1968).

The award is open to graduate students, independent scholars, and faculty below the rank of associate professor (US, Canada), or equivalent (i.e. within the first five years of a permanent teaching appointment).

Applicants should submit full papers to the Executive Secretary of the Andrew Marvell Society by 1 January 2013.  Applicants should be ready to read their papers at SCRC, Exploring the Renaissance, 2013, where the award will be presented by the President of SCRC at the closing luncheon.
