CONINGTON PRIZE 2007

The prize will be offered for a dissertation on a subject to be chosen by the writer and approved by the Board of the Faculty of Philosophy 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 Secretary to the Philosophy Faculty Board, Philosophy Centre, 10 Merton Street, Oxford OX1 4JJ, no later than 17 November 2006. In case of doubt the Board will determine whether a subject falls within the above field.

Three typed copies of the dissertation must reach the Secretary to the Philosophy Faculty Board on or before 19 January 2007. The dissertations may be written either in English or in Latin, at the choice of the writer.

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, 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:

2008 Classical literature, textual criticism, and philology.

2009 Ancient history, religion, art, and archaeology.

2010 Ancient philosophy and ideas.
