About The Curriers’Prize

Essays must fall within the scope of The London Journal. They may be on any aspect of London life, past and present, reflect any relevant approach or disciplinary perspective, and can consider London alone or in comparison with other cities. In keeping with the Lord Mayor’s theme of the Knowledge Mile this year, we would welcome entries which consider the history of science, technology and innovation in London. However, the prize will be awarded to the best essay regardless of subject. Essays must be based on original research, and should not have been previously published.

Area of research: 

The history of London from the Romans to the present day.

Eligibility requirements: 

The prize is open to postgraduate students, and to early career scholars whether based in the UK or in any country.

Amount awarded:
