Spotlight on… 100 years of the James Tait Black Prizes
The James Tait Black (JTB) Prizes for Fiction and Biography were established in 2019.
They are the only major awards of their kind in Britain to be judged by scholars and students, specifically senior staff and around 20 postgraduate students in English Literature at the University of Edinburgh.
We talked to two of these brilliant students - June and Vivek - to find out what the Prizes have brought to their PhD experience. Image © Neil Hanna.
