The Eos Promising Scholar Awards

The Editors and Volunteers of Coreopsis Journal of Myth and Theatre are proud to announce the winners of the Ēōs Promising Scholar Award for 2017-18.

Ēōs Erigeneia – Evelyn De Morgan (1895)

Named for the ancient goddess of the dawn, Ēōs Erigeneia, who brings up the light of day from the east. Often the companion of Athena, Eos brings light both metaphorically and in reality each new morning.

Presented to scholars at the “dawn” of their careers and who have not published previously in a peer reviewed journal.  Scholars are selected by the staff and peer review team for papers submitted to Coreopsis Journal which exemplify excellence in research and writing. 

The two Eos scholars for this year were tied for the award. Each scholar is also an artist in her own right and are active in their communities making this world a better place. The papers tackled difficult subjects that are well deserving of attention by researchers.
