The second Hume Studies Essay Prize is to be awarded in 2023! The competition is open to those ten or fewer years from the Ph.D., including those currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program. The winning paper will be published with acknowledgment in Hume Studies, and the author will receive $1,000. Hume Studies, the interdisciplinary journal of the Hume Society, publishes work on all aspects of Hume and his world.

To be eligible for the prize, papers must be submitted any time before and including August 1, 2022 (11:59 Eastern Daylight Savings time). We invite qualified authors to submit their papers to the competition. For more information, see:

Also, we hope you have noticed that Hume Studies 46:1-2 (2020) and Hume Studies 47:1 (Apr. 2022) are both now available on the Hume Society and Project Muse websites:

As the Editors’ Introduction to 47:1 explains, the Executive Committee, the Editorial Board, and the Editors agreed to advance the cover date ahead a year so that Hume Studies issues will coordinate with the calendar. Subscribers will be credited for the skipped year.
