First Hume Studies Essay Prize

Published on February 16, 2021

The Hume Society invites submissions for the first Hume Studies Essay Prize, to be awarded in 2022. The biennial competition is open to those ten or fewer years from the Ph.D., including those currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program. The winning paper will be published with acknowledgment in Hume Studies, and the author will receive $1,000. To be eligible for the first prize, papers must be submitted any time before and including August 1, 2021 (11:59 Eastern Daylight Savings time).

Authors will be asked as a step in the submission process whether they qualify. Papers will undergo the regular anonymized referee review process and a separate anonymous review by a subset of members of the Editorial Board, who will decide the competition winner. Papers not selected for the award may still be accepted for publication. The editors can decide not to move submissions on to the Board review if referee reports indicate they would not be competitive. The Editorial Board reserves the right not to award a prize in any given competition.

The first winning essay will appear next year in a 2022 issue of Hume Studies. Please direct questions to forthcoming editors, Elizabeth Radcliffe (eradcliffe@wm.edu) or Mark Spencer (mspencer@brocku.ca).
