Colby Book Prize Nomination
The Robert and Vineta Colby Prize is intended to honor original book-length scholarship about Victorian periodicals and newspapers, of the kind that Robert and Vineta Colby themselves produced during their careers. The annual prize is awarded to a book published during the preceding year that most advances our understanding of the nineteenth-century British press. The winner receives a monetary award of $2,000 USD (shared in the case of co-winners). The winner is invited to speak at RSVP’s annual conference and up to $1,000 USD will be available to support related travel costs.
