Dalhousie French Studies

DALHOUSIE FRENCH STUDIES is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of French and Francophone literature.

The Editors of DFS are proud to announce that our contributor Benjamin Dalton has been selected as first runner-up for the annual Malcolm Bowie Prize, awarded by the Society for French Studies – “the foremost learned association for French Studies in the UK and Ireland” – “for the best article published in the preceding year by an early-career researcher in the broader discipline of French Studies.” Dr. Dalton (PhD King’s College London, 2020, who currently teaches English at Université Paris-Nanterre) has been recognized for his article “Forms of Freedoms: Marie Darrieussecq, Catherine Malabou, and the Plasticity of Science,” published in Dalhousie French Studies 115 (2020), 55–73.

We are all the more pleased by this recognition as Malcolm Bowie, in whose name this award has been created and an immense figure of French Studies in the English-speaking world, had been a reader on the occasion of the PhD thesis defence of Dalhousie French Studies’ former Editor, Michael Bishop, at the University of Kent, Canterbury in the early 1970s.  

We wholeheartedly congratulate Dr. Dalton for this much-deserved recognition and wish him all possible continued success in his research.
