The Marjorie Griffin Cohen Prize

The Marjorie Griffin Cohen Prize recognizes the two best papers presented to the Annual Meetings of the BCPSA in the current year. Named to honour a leading BC essayist, activist and public intellectual, the new competition reflects our commitment to provide venues to present, recognize and reward critical scholarship.  

  • The eligibility condition is that the presenter has to submit and present a paper at the BCPSA Annual General Meeting.
  • The Marjorie Griffin Cohen Prize is awarded by an adjudication committee organized by the President of the BCPSA.
  • A revised version of that paper must be submitted to the President of the BCPSA within three weeks after the meetings.
  • The 2019 submission date for revised papers is May 24, 2019.
  • Papers should be submitted to alexander.netherton@viu.ca.
