Winner winner!

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!

Tech Update!

Our wonderful web editor, Erica Steiner, has been an extremely busy bee in recent weeks, updating the Cerae website to make it more streamlined and easier to use.  You  should be able to find articles and blog posts with ease now – have a browse, let us know what you think.  All Cerae articles are open access and fully downloadable, so you can discover important new scholarship without university affiliation or nasty paywalls.

Erica has also created an academia.edu page for the journal.  This is a new platform for us to share articles, blog posts, news, and CfPs.  If you’re on the site, please follow us and we’ll follow you back!

And as ever, we’re active on twitter and facebook.  As a postgraduate researcher, social media has been a complete lifeline to me – twitter is where I find out about conferences, CfPs, developments in my field, but it is also where I have made friends who understand this wacky academic life.  Thank you to everyone who follows Cerae, comments on our posts, and generally makes social media a lovely and important place to be.
