The BACLS Edited Collection Prize

We are delighted to share the news that "World Literature, Neoliberalism, and the Culture of Discontent has been awarded the British Association for Contemporary Literary Studies 2019 Edited Collection Prize. Panellists thought that this hugely impressive collection makes a tremendous contribution to the kind of research that BACLS promotes.”

This is an essay collection that Stephen Shapiro and Sharae Deckard carried out for Prof Neil Lazarus' and Prof Pablo Mukherjee’s Palgrave series.

This is a culmination of work carried out by Mike Niblett, Claire Westall, Kerstin Oloff, and Richard Godden, who all have essays in it, so it speaks to the research culture of the department.
