BAMS Essay Prize 2021 winners: Imola Nagy-Seres and Doug Battersby

Two essays have jointly been awarded this year’s BAMS Essay Prize of £250 and the publication of the essay in Modernist Cultures. We would like to congratulate both:

Imola Nagy-Seres, ‘Katherine Mansfield’s Poetics of Breathing’

The committee found this a fabulous rereading of Katherine Mansfield’s work though breath and physical culture.

Doug Battersby, ‘Ford Madox Ford and the New Cardiology’

The committee found this a wonderfully convincing article on cardiology, the heart, and Ford Madox Ford.

The standard of essays submitted this year was truly astounding and the prize committee would like to thank everyone who took the time to share their work. The field of modernism is in excellent hands if this is the standard of scholarship from our new and emerging colleagues.
