Early Career Prize

The RaAM Early Career Research Paper Prize aims to encourage the production and dissemination of high quality research in the field of metaphor, metonymy, and other forms of figurative expression. 

The prize is awarded every conference year for the best research paper published by a researcher who has recently completed a PhD. In 2020, researchers are eligible when their defense has taken place between 18th June 2016 and 18th June 2020 (or, exceptionally, when they are still enrolled/registered as a PhD student).

The prize is £ 200 + free RaAM membership until 21 June 2021

The submission deadline is 18 April 2020. More information about the criteria, eligibility, and procedures can be found here.

Papers should be submitted to David O’Reilly: david.oreilly@york.ac.uk.

The winner will be chosen by a jury comprising dr. David O’Reilly (University of York, UK), dr. Marianna Bolognesi (University of Bologna, Italy), and prof. dr. Anne Golden (University of Oslo, Norway).

The award will be announced at the RaAM 2020 Conference in Hamar, Norway.
