Book Prizes

The JWMS at Williams College awards up to one annual book prize to recognize outstanding scholarly works that either examine Miller’s philosophy, engage with his methodology by demonstrating its application, including in teaching, or that are devoted to topics with which Miller was engaged. Book prizes range from $7,000-$12,000 on any given academic year.

In order to submit a book for consideration, it must be published or immediately forthcoming (having cleared the review process) from a reputable press, whether academic or popular. Submissions are collected on a rolling basis, any time during the year, with a deadline of August 1 for consideration for the next academic year’s annual prize. A submission will include:

  • A pdf or full access link to the published book, or final page proofs for the forthcoming book with all publication information clearly indicated; or
    Bibliographical details for the book via email, with a hardcopy of the book itself sent separately to:

Katie Terezakis
Department of Philosophy/CLA
Rochester Institute of Technology
92 Lomb Memorial Drive
Rochester, New York 14623-5604

  • A 1-3 page synopsis of the books’ relevance to Miller’s philosophy, to the study of Miller’s philosophy, or to bodies of knowledge treated by and significant for Miller.
  • A CV and contact information.

Submissions should be emailed to Co-Directors Dr. McGandy ([email protected]) and Dr. Terezakis ([email protected]) with the subject heading: JWMS Book Prize_Submission. If you are mailing your book separately by snail mail, please send the email so that it arrives before the book.
