New Political Philosophy Prize
David Sobel (Syracuse) announces the creation of the Marc Sanders Prize in Political Philosophy:
The Marc Sanders Prize in Political Philosophy is a biennial essay competition open to scholars who, at the time of submission deadline, are within fifteen (15) years of receiving a Ph.D. or are students currently enrolled in a graduate program. Independent scholars may also be eligible and should direct inquiries to the Editors of Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy, c/o Peter Vallentyne ([email protected]). The award for the prize-winning essay is $10,000, and winning essays will be published in Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy. A condition of the award is that the author (1) present the paper at the following annual Workshop for Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy, and (2) commit to having the paper published in the associated Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy and to not publishing elsewhere prior to that publication.
The rest of the details are at PEA Soup.
Fifteen years? That’s an interestingly wide range. For the especially audacious, that could include junior high-school students in the 8th grade. Is this mostly meant to capture independent scholars who may (or may not) choose to pursue the doctorate at some point?Report
The announcement is unclear. What they mean is having received a Ph.D. within the last fifteen years.Report
