John Benjamins Prize
The John Benjamins Prize for Linguistic and Literary Scholarship
Updated: 15 June 2015

John Benjamins PublishingThe John Benjamins Prize for Linguistic and Literary Scholarship has been created by John Benjamins Publishing Company of Amsterdam and Philadelphia and the International Federation for Modern Languages and Literatures (FILLM).

FILLM and John Benjamins already have a history of cooperation, in that John Benjamins publishes the book series FILLM Studies in Languages and Literatures. In 2015, it was agreed to extend this cooperation by setting up The John Benjamins Prize for Linguistic and Literary Scholarship. The idea is that the Prize will help to meet one of the aims stated in FILLM’s Constitution: “ to draw the attention of the general public to outstanding achievements in linguistic and literary scholarship from all over the world.”

In short, the basic terms of The John Benjamins Prize are:
  • once every three years, in connection with the triennial FILLM Congresses, John Benjamins will donate the sum of €1500 to FILLM in order to finance The John Benjamins Prize for Linguistic and Literary Scholarship;
  • the Prize will be awarded by FILLM as a mark of recognition and encouragement to an up-and-coming scholar whose most important scholarly achievements may still be in the future;
  • in practice, the Prize will be awarded for the best paper submitted by such a scholar to the volume of proceedings from FILLM’s triennial Congress to be published in FILLM Studies in Languages and Literatures;
  • the prize-winning paper will be identified by the editor(s) responsible for the proceedings volume;
  • the prize money will be tranferred by FILLM to the prize-winner as soon as the winning paper has been identified;
  • in addition to the prize money, the prize-winner will also be awarded a diploma to be received (if necessary in absentia) during a ceremony arranged in conjunction with the Presidential Address at FILLM's next triennial Congress.
If you have any questions or queries regarding the John Benjamins Prize, please contact FILLM's communications officer.
