Allan Lloyd Smith Prizes 2019

The International Gothic Association is delighted to announce the nominations for this year’s Allan Lloyd Smith Prizes.

In 2011, as a memorial to its founding President Dr Allan Lloyd Smith (1945-2010), the International Gothic Association established a prize to be awarded for a scholarly publication considered to have advanced the field of Gothic studies significantly. For the 2019 incarnation of the award we are delighted that there will be two Prizes of £100 each: one for a standout monograph published on the Gothic over the last two years, and another for an edited collection published over the last four years.
