Message 1: Naylor Prize in South Slavic and Balkan Linguistics
Date: 01-Feb-2006
From: Brian Joseph <bjosephling.ohio-state.edu>
Subject: Naylor Prize in South Slavic and Balkan Linguistics

ANNOUNCING -- The 2005-06 Competition for:

The Kenneth E. Naylor Young Scholar's Prize in South Slavic and Balkan

In memory of Kenneth E. Naylor, Balkanist and South Slavic linguist
par excellence, the Naylor Professorship in South Slavic Linguistics
in the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and
Literatures at The Ohio State University established in 1999 a prize
of $500 for the best unpublished paper by a young scholar on a topic
in Balkan or South Slavic linguistics. This academic year's
competition is now officially open.

We thus solicit papers written in English by young scholars -- defined
for this competition as an advanced graduate student (who is beyond
his/her first year of study) or someone who is no more than three
years beyond the awarding of the Ph.D. degree at the time of
submission -- that treats some topic either in Balkan linguistics,
taking a comparative approach and treating at least two languages of
Southeastern Europe, or in any of the South Slavic languages on their
own or in relation to the other languages of the Balkans.

In order to be eligible, the submitted paper must be unpublished, and
not under consideration for publication at the time of submission;
however, papers that have appeared in an issue of a "Working Papers"
series are still eligible for consideration in the competition. Those
that have appeared in conference proceedings volumes of any sort are
not eligible, unless they are substantially revised and/or expanded.
Written versions of papers that have been presented at a conference
are eligible, as are papers based on chapters of dissertations or
M.A. theses (but not raw dissertation chapters or M.A. theses
themselves). In all cases, however, the Committee will look for
self-contained scholarly articles of publishable quality that treat
some relevant topic (as spelled out above) in an interesting and
insightful way, following any appropriate approach (historical,
synchronic, sociolinguistic, etc.) and any theoretical framework.

Interested scholars should submit four copies of the paper along with
an abstract (no longer than 250 words) and a cover sheet with the
title of the paper, the author's name, affiliation, mailing address,
e-mail address, phone and fax numbers, date of entrance into an
appropriate graduate program or of awarding of Ph.D. (as the case may
be), and US social security number, if the author has one (having one,
though, is not a requirement), to:

Naylor Prize Competition
Dept. of Slavic & East European Languages & Literatures
400 Hagerty Hall
1775 College Road
The Ohio State University
Columbus, Ohio USA 43210.

The deadline for receipt of the papers in the Department for this
competition is APRIL 30, 2006. The Screening Committee, consisting of
the Naylor Professor and former speakers in the annual Kenneth
E. Naylor Memorial Lecture series, expects to make the announcement of
the winner by June 30, 2006. The winning paper will be published
(after any necessary revisions) in an issue of the journal
Balkanistica. The Committee reserves the right not to award the Prize
in a given year.

Please address any inquiries to the Naylor Professor, Brian D. Joseph,
at the above address or via e-mail at joseph.1osu.edu.
