Warmest congratulations to Professor Emerita Kathryn Kerby Fulton, whose book The Clerical Proletariat and the Resurgence of Medieval English Poetry was awarded the 2022 Margaret Wade Labarge Prize from the Canadian Society of Medievalists / Société Canadienne des Médiévistes. 

The Margaret Wade Labarge Prize is for the best book published by a Canadian medievalist. The prize is named for the Society’s first President Dr. Margaret Wade Labarge. It was instantly dubbed “The Polly,” reflecting the nickname by which this warm and beloved medievalist was known from coast to coast. With this award for an outstanding book, the Society seeks to recognize and encourage the quality and diversity of scholarship exhibited by our first President, Margaret Wade Labarge.

The Canadian Society of Medievalists / Société Canadienne des Médiévistes welcomes entries for the 2022 Margaret Wade Labarge Book Prize. The 2023 prize will honor a book published in 2022 in the field of medieval studies (including monographs, editions, translations, and other categories as determined by the Prize Committee), authored or co-authored, translated or co-translated, edited or co-edited, etc. (the test being at least 50% participation) by a Canadian or someone resident in Canada. Edited collections of essays are not eligible.
