CARMEN Project Prize has its winner

CARMEN: The Worldwide Medieval Network is delighted to announce the results of the inaugural CARMEN Project Prize competition, 2018.

The competition received 23 entries, from scholars at varying career stages and from across the world. The judges were impressed by the very high quality of project ideas, and excited to see the wide range of important and impactful projects in Medieval Studies currently in development.
We are delighted to announce that the winner of the CARMEN Project Prize, 2018, is James Smith (Trinity College, Dublin), for the project ‘Pre-modern Manuscripts and Early Books in Conflict Zones’. Due to the exceptional quality of entries in the 2018 competition, the judges also made the decision to make two further ‘Special Commendation’ awards for outstanding project ideas. These went to Elizabeth L’Estrange (University of Birmingham) for her project, ‘Redefining Women and the Book in the Middle Ages (c. 800-1600)’ and Paul B. Sturtevant (The Smithsonian Institution / The Public Medievalist) for his proposal, ‘The Public Medievalcast, Season 1: Borders’.
