The Australasian Children’s Literature Association for Research (ACLAR) is calling for submissions for the second biennial Kate McInally Postgraduate Essay Prize.
The Prize is in honour of Dr Kate McInally, a previous Vice-President of the ACLAR and passionate scholar and teacher of children’s literature. Kate inspired numerous students to undertake research at the masters and doctoral levels. As such, this award follows Kate’s example by continuing to foster future scholars in the discipline of children’s literature studies.
The prize, worth $500, is awarded to the best essay by a postgraduate student in children’s literature studies, as judged by ACLAR board members. It will be announced and awarded at the biennial ACLAR conference, which will be held at the Wagga Wagga campus of Charles Sturt University, July 13-15, 2016.
