ANDA Prizes


ANDA is pleased to announce the following prizes:

Award in Category A – Unpublished Article/Essay

The essay or article will be accepted for publication in Le Simplegadi (Fascia A journal) with an honourable mention.

Award in Category B – Book

Only books published during the previous year are eligible.

Applications for both categories are not accepted. Moreover, applicants must have been enrolled as ANDA members for at least a year prior to the year for which the prize is awarded. For each prize, the winner(s) will receive a parchment certificate with the reasons for the award and a work of art created specifically and offered by artists of national and international renown.

The 2019 Book Prize is open to works published in the field of English Literature and Culture in 2018. Books should be either monographs of scholarly research or critical editions, written either in English or Italian. Edited books (collections of essays by several hands) and translations are not accepted.

The submitted works will be evaluated by the ANDA Steering Committee, who may use external referees. At the end of the judging process, the Committee will select one work for each category and, in addition, may grant honourable mentions.

Applicants should send a copy of their unpublished essay/article or the editorial PDF of their published book along with a full CV with personal and contact details to the Secretary Loredana Salis (lsalis@uniss.it). Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2019.

The winner(s) will be informed at least a month prior to the conference (further details will be announced soon in this webpage). The prize will be awarded during the 2020 ANDA conference.



ANDA awards prizes to works on English studies. The previous ANDA Book Prizes were awarded in 2018 in Genoa. The next ANDA Prizes will be awarded at the 2020 ANDA conference in Trento.
