The Committee on Honors and Awards of the Modern Language Association invites authors to compete for the twenty-second annual Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for Comparative Literary Studies, to be awarded for an outstanding scholarly work in the field of comparative literary studies involving at least two literatures. For the competition in 2014, the committee solicits entries of books written by current members of the association and published in 2013. Works of literary history, literary criticism, philology, and literary theory are eligible, as are works dealing with literature and other arts and disciplines, including cinema; books that are primarily translations will not be considered. The Scaglione Prize for Comparative Literary Studies, which consists of a cash award and a certificate, was established by the Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Endowment Fund. It will be presented to the winning author at the association's annual convention in January 2015.
