The Peter Lang Young Scholars Competition was established in 2011 to recognize outstanding early career researchers for their contribution in different fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Peter Lang has always been committed to supporting those at the beginning of their academic careers and the establishment of this prize is further evidence of this commitment. The publishing group is delighted to announce the winner of the 2018 Peter Lang Young Scholars Competition in Comparative Literature:
