We are delighted to announce that the European Journal of Cultural Studies have kindly agreed to establish a best paper award for early career scholars presenting their research at the ECC in Aarhus in October 2022. The award has a financial value of 1500 euros and will be presented at the Aarhus conference.

The award is open to early career researchers who are either doctoral researchers or who have received their doctorate recently.

Applicants should either be single or first authors and the papers should not have been already published in a scholarly journal.

The submission date for entries is Friday September 23, 4pm CET.
