The Philip Roth Society is proud to announce the winner of the 2012 Siegel/McDaniel Award for Graduate Student Research, Andy Connolly. Andy, a recent doctoral graduate of Edinburgh University, accomplished this feat with his essay submission, ”Literary Labor and Physical Toil: Contesting Notions of Work and Origins in American Pastoral.” The prize comes with a $250 cash award; a one-year membership (or renewal) in the Philip Roth Society, including a subscription to Philip Roth Studies; and the opportunity to work with the editor of Philip Roth Studies to publish an expanded version of the essay in the journal.
This award is given in honor of the work of Ben Siegel and John N. McDaniel, founding members of the Philip Roth Society and two of America’s earliest and most influential Roth scholars.
