The Northeast Victorian Studies Association is accepting nominations for the Sonya Rudikoff Award for the best first monograph on the Victorian period published in 2010. The Sonya Rudikoff Award was established by the Robert Gutman family in honor of Mr. Gutman's late wife. Ms. Rudikoff was an active member of the Northeast Victorian Studies Association and a recognized scholar.
Any text nominated for this award must be the author's first academic monograph. The subject should address Victorian literature and/or culture. Our focus is on Victorian Great Britain and the Empire, although we will consider texts that are transatlantic or long nineteenth-century in focus. We will not consider texts that are strictly American Victorian. Books must have been published during 2010. The award winner will receive a cash prize. The winning author and publisher will be announced at the April 2012 conference of the Northeast Victorian Studies Association at Columbia University.
Please have the publisher submit seven copies of the text by July 20, 2011 to
