Hardin Craig Prize
Beginning with volume 89 (2010), PQ will award the Hardin Craig Prize to the author of the best essay published annually in the journal. Named after PQ's founding editor, the prize honors Hardin Craig (1875–1968), who taught Shakespeare and English drama at the University of Iowa between 1919 and 1928. A cash award of $1,000 will go to the article, in any area of literary study, published by a contributor (excluding current students or faculty at the University of Iowa) that best has advanced scholarship in its field. The essay is selected by PQ's editorial advisory board with the advice of expert consultants as required.
