CFP: The Literature of Sport/Grad Student Essay Contest

The Sport Literature Association sponsors an annual competition among graduate students for the Lyle Olsen Graduate Student Essay Contest. Essays must pertain in some way to the literature of sport as noted in the association's journal, Aethlon, to wit: entries should “celebrate the intersection of literature with the world of play, games, and sport.” Submissions “should address treatments of sport in texts or textual media (print, film, performance, digital or other media).”       

The winner will receive a small stipend, publication in the peer-reviewed journal, a year's subscription to same, and some travel monies to attend and present the paper to the annual conference in June. Please encourage your graduate students to enter electronically, emailing their work to Dr. Richard McGehee at the University of Texas at Entries should be received no later than March 1, 2013.

This year's conference is at Monmouth University, in West Long Branch, NJ.
