The Department of English at the University of Kansas is pleased to announce information about the Trollope Prize competition for 2017.
The Trollope Prize is an essay contest open to both undergraduate and graduate students writing about the works of Victorian novelist, Anthony Trollope. Essays are invited on the topic of "Trollope and His World." Submissions may include essays focusing exclusively on the works of Anthony Trollope; comparative essays on Trollope and other writers; essays examining Trollope's work and career in the larger context of Victorian history, culture and society; historical or literary essays on topics central to Trollope's work and illuminated by his work; or essays on the reception of Trollope's work or on his larger cultural influence.
Prizes will be given to the best essay written by an undergraduate student ($1,000) and the best essay written by a graduate student ($2,000). The faculty advisor of the winning undergraduate essay will receive a $500 award to help support the continued development of curriculum focusing on Trollope's works.
