The 2011 Trollope Prize
sponsored by the English Department and the Hall Center for the Humanities
at the University of Kansas.
The Trollope Prize will be awarded to the best undergraduate and graduate essays in English on the works of Anthony Trollope. Essays are invited on the topic of “Trollope and His World.” Submissions may include essays focusing exclusively on the works of Anthony Trollope; comparative essays on Trollope and other writers; essays examining Trollope’s work and career in the larger context of Victorian history, culture and society; historical or literary essays on topics central to Trollope’s work and illuminated by his work; or essays on the reception of Trollope’s work or on his larger cultural influence.
Beginning in 2011, two prizes will be awarded: one to an essay written by an undergraduate student and one to an essay written by a graduate student. The writers of the winning undergraduate essay will receive a $1,000 award and a hardcover copy of a Trollope novel. The winning undergraduate student’s faculty adviser will also receive a $500 award to help support the continued development of curriculum focusing on Trollope’s works. The graduate winner will receive a $2,000 award and a hardcover copy of a Trollope novel.
All essays must be received by June 1, 2011. Winners will be announced in August 2011.
