Mark and Ruth Luckens International Prize in Jewish Thought and Culture
The Jewish Studies Program at the University of Kentucky invites entries for the annual Mark and Ruth Luckens Essay Competition in Jewish Thought and Culture. The Luckens Prize is awarded to the best unpublished original essay by a graduate student or recent Ph.D. (Ph.D must be from no earlier than 2011-2012). The Luckens Prize carries a prize of $1000, made possible by a generous gift from the late Dr. Mark Luckens.
Entries for the Luckens Prize competition should be original, unpublished essays of 5000-7000 words in length including all notes and citations; essays that exceed this length will not be considered. All submissions must be in English. Entries will be judged by an interdisciplinary committee of faculty affiliated with the UK Jewish Studies program. In addition to the cash award, the author of the winning essay will be invited to deliver a public lecture at the University of Kentucky in spring 2013.
Submissions for the 2013 Luckens Prize competition should be submitted electronically as Word or PDF documents to Professor Janice W. Fernheimer, Interim Director, UK Jewish Studies program, Division of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Media, Department of English, email@example.com. Submissions must be received by midnight Oct. 19, 2012 to be considered.
