I’m writing you just before breaking for the holidays to let you know that our annual postgraduate essay prize is open to receive submissions. The Peter B Clarke Memorial Essay Prize is sponsored by Taylor and Francis, and it awards an essay on any aspect of contemporary religion addressed from a sociological perspective.
Up for grabs is £100 cash prize, £50 book voucher, a subscription to Journal of Contemporary Religion, and a full pass for a Socrel Annual Conference. As well, the winner is welcome to submit their entry to Journal of Contemporary Religion and, subject to peer review, it will be published and identified as the prize-winning article.
Full details are on our website, including the cover sheet can be download.
The deadline for the essay prize is 30 April 2021. There is lots of time, so if you are a postgraduate member, please consider entering! And if you are supervising a student or teach students in this field, please pass on the details for their consideration.
With best regards,
Publications and Communications Officer, Socrel
