The Editors of DFS have the honor and the privilege to announce that our contributor Luke Warde, from Trinity College Dublin, has been selected as runner-up for the highly prestigious annual Malcolm Bowie Prize, which has been awarded yearly since 2008 by the Society for French Studies, “for the best article published in the preceding year by an early-career researcher in the broader discipline of French Studies”. Dr. Warde's article “Louis-Ferdinand Céline: Trolling for Another Time?”, published in DFS 118, p. 165–179, has been selected from a rich slate of 36 submissions, evaluated by a panel made up of Drs.Diana Holmes (Leeds, Panel Chair and SFS Vice-President), Shirley Jordan (Newcastle), Judith Miller (NYU), Michael Syrotinski (Glasgow and President of SFS), and Downing Thomas (Iowa).
