CONINGTON PRIZE 2001

Amended notice

Note: the subject areas for the Conington Prize 2001 are ancient philosophy, and ideas, not ancient history, religion, art, and archaeology, as stated in the notice which appeared in the Gazette of 2 November 2000.

The prize is offered for a dissertation on a subject to be chosen by the writer and approved by the Board of the Faculty of Literae Humaniores within the field of ancient philosophy, and ideas. The value of the prize will be about £1,000.

Applications for permission to offer an intended subject should be sent to the Assistant to the Secretary of the Board of the Faculty of Literae Humaniores, 34 St Gilesū, Oxford OX1 3LH, as early as possible, but in any case by Friday, 8 December. In case of doubt the Board will determine whether a subject falls within the above field.

The dissertations must reach the Secretary to the Board on or before Friday, 12 January 2001. They may be written either in English or Latin, at the option of the writer. Three typed copies must be submitted.

The prize is open to all members of the University who, on the day appointed for sending in the dissertations, are

(i) qualified by examination for a degree of the University, (ii) have completed six years, and have not exceeded fifteen years, from their matriculation, except that graduates whose first degrees are from other universities shall have completed two years, and not exceeded eleven years, from their matriculation, and (iii)are of postdoctoral status or equivalent.

The prize may not be awarded twice to the same person, but a previously unsuccessful competitor may resubmit his or her dissertation, or an amended version of it, within the same field only on not more than two occasions.

The judges may determine not to award the prize in any year if no dissertation of sufficient merit is submitted.

The prize is offered annually in three fields in rotation. The cycle will continue as follows:

2002 classical literature, textual criticism, and philology.

2003 ancient history, religion, art, and archaeology.

2004 ancient philosophy, and ideas.
