Congratulations go to Deborah Molloy, a member of the Graduate School team, who has been awarded the Elsa Nettels Prize for a Beginning Scholar from the Edith Wharton Society. She won the prize for her paper entitled ‘In the Cave of the Oracle: Feminine Tragedy in The House of Mirth and Mrs Manstey’s View’. In addition to winning the $250 prize her essay will be considered for publication in the Edith Wharton Review.

The Elsa Nettles award recognises the best unpublished essay on Edith Wharton by a beginning scholar, advanced graduate students, independent scholars, and academics who have not held a full-time appointment for more than four years.

This is a great start for Deborah, who begins a part-time PhD in 20th Century American Women’s Literature next month. She joins the many members of staff undertaking study alongside their professional commitments.
