The EEBO in Undergraduate Studies Essay Competition Committee is seeking
undergraduate research papers that rely on research conducted via the
Early English Books Online collection of primary texts. Essays may
reflect the approach of any number of academic disciplines history,
literary studies, philosophy, anthropology, religious studies, and more
or they may be interdisciplinary in nature. The chief requirement is
that each paper draws substantial evidence from the works included in
EEBO.  Grand prize winners will also have the opportunity to publish
their work in _Studies in Medieval and Renaissance History_

EEBO will contain page images of 125,000 books listed in the Pollard and
Redgrave, Wing, and Thomason Tracts catalogs. With its substantial
coverage of printed material found in England between 1473 and 1700,
EEBO provides rich research possibilities for students interested in a
wide variety of topics in early modern studies.
