The Bibliographic Society of Canada (BSC) is pleased to announce that Rachel Burlock has been nominated for the BSC-SbC’s Congress Graduate Student Merit Award. Rachel is a doctoral student at the University of Alberta in the department of English and Film Studies. The awards Committee was impressed with Rachel’s research, which was foregrounded in community history book from a rural settlement in Manitoba.
Rachel will present a paper at the BSC annual conference, which will study the publication as a product of settler-colonial histories, but also as a starting point from which to investigate other narratives, texts and realities by utilizing both book history and geocritical methodologies.
Rachel will be invited to publish a revised, article-length version of her conference paper in the Papers of the Bibliographical Society of Canada, subject to peer review. The prize also includes a grant of $500.
