JEC-TEDS Grad Student Paper Competition

The Jonathan Edwards Center at Trinity (jecteds.org) is pleased to announce this year’s annual paper competition for graduate students. Papers must focus on Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), his contexts, or his legacies, and must be written mainly in English. They may be submitted, however, by graduate students from anywhere, working in any major academic discipline. Each year’s winner will receive a cash prize of $1,000 (U.S.) and guaranteed publication in Jonathan Edwards Studies. Submissions are due by May 15 of each year. The winners will be announced by August 1.

Further details may be found below. Please share this announcement with your colleagues. Queries and submissions should be directed to Professor Douglas A. Sweeney (dsweeney@trin.edu).
