The annual Raymond Williams Society Essay Competition has been renamed in honour of our late and much-missed colleague, Simon Dentith (1952-2014), former editor of Key Words and competition judge.
The aim of the Raymond Williams Society postgraduate essay competition for work founded in the tradition of cultural materialism is to encourage a new generation of scholars in this area, especially those grounded in discourses and approaches arising from the work of Raymond Williams.
