Cerae are pleased to announce the winner of our volume four essay prize. This prize was awarded to an article submitted under our volume four theme of Influence and Appropriation. We published two articles related to this theme, and it was a very hard decision as to whom the prize should be awarded, as both articles were of excellent quality and hugely interesting. The committee have decided to award this year’s prize to Jocelyn Hargrave for her article ‘Aphra Behn: Cultural Translator and Editorial Intermediary.’
Jocelyn’s article, which draws on her PhD research on the evolution of editorial practice in early modern England, struck a particular chord with the committee as editors ourselves. It was interesting to draw parallels between modern editorial practices and those of one of our predecessors in the historical periods that we research.
Please join us in congratulating Jocelyn. As with all research published by Cerae, as an Open Access academic journal, her winning article is available to download for free by any interested party, so do go and have a read!
