The Nancy F. Marino Prize for Best Essay in Hispanomedieval Studies
at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo

The Nancy F. Marino Prize honors the contribution of Professor Marino to the profession, in particular her devotion and dedication to the many colleagues and students in Hispanomedieval Studies she mentored and inspired in her role as a founder of IMANA and as facilitator for the field each year at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo.

The Marino Prize recognizes excellent Hispanomedieval scholarship in an essay of outstanding quality written by a graduate student or early career scholar and accepted for the upcoming annual International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo.

The winning paper is determined by a panel of judges, selected annually by La corónica. The winner will receive: $1,000 cash prize, recognition at the annual IMANA banquet at Kalamazoo, and an invitation to expand the winning paper and submit it for consideration for publication in La corónica.


  • All early career scholars (who have received their PhDs in the last 4 years)
  • Any student enrolled in an MA or PhD program at conference time
  • Papers may address any topic in Hispanomedievalism.
  • Submitted papers must be accepted and presented at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo.


Please note

  • Papers should be in the form actually to be delivered at Kalamazoo (not a longer essay on which the conference paper is based).
  • Submissions should include a cover page with the following information: title of the paper, name, academic affiliation, and email address.
  • Please do not submit a handout or Powerpoint. All quotations should be included in the body of the paper and a Works Cited list provided at the end.
  • While formatting changes, correction of typos, and the addition of a Works Cited page are acceptable, changes to the substance of the argument are not.
