We are pleased to announce two new Master's dissertation prizes in the field of Levantine studies for the academic year 2019:

  • Levantine archaeology or history: the CBRL Prize for a final-year Master's dissertation, or major research paper
  • Contemporary Levantine studies: the CBRL Prize for a final-year Master's dissertation, or major research paper

‚ÄčWe invite UK based heads of departments or chairs of departmental examination boards to nominate one final year dissertation in one of the above subject areas. Where a department covers both the ancient and contemporary Levant, one nomination for each prize may be entered.

The dissertation should be the best in the subject area (with a Distinction quality), should focus on a topic relating to Levantine studies whether ancient or modern, should make an original contribution to research debates, and be of excellent quality.

Nominations will be entered into a national competition for the 2019 CBRL Master’s Dissertation Prizes.

Prize: £250, plus one-year membership of CBRL and acknowledgement on CBRL's website.
