Royal Asiatic Society awards; Articles on Asia
A prize for an article by a young scholar

The Royal Asiatic Society announces the introduction of a new prize
for essays produced by young scholars ('young scholar' being defined
as either someone in the process of completing their PhD or someone
who has been awarded their doctorate within the previous five years)
working on the history, archaeology, literature, language, religion,
archaeology and art of Asia. The focus is not limited to any specific
region within Asia or to any particular discipline, something that
reflects the broad remit of the Society's activities and interests.
Award-winning submissions will be published in the Society's
peer-reviewed Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society

Please note: no rigid limit is imposed on the length of the
contribution but it should be appreciated that the most suitable
length is c. 6,000 words; submissions should be in 'hard copy' on A4
sheets with double spacing accompanied by an electronic version;
alternatively scholars may submit by email attachment, providing a
postal address is
supplied, to: The Journal, The Royal Asiatic Society, 14 Stephenson
Way London NW1, 2HD.

Closing date 31st May 2007
