Thanks to a generous contribution of the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Graz, the IDE is pleased to announce the first award for the best review published in RIDE, worth 250€.
The prize committee – Evelyn Gius from Hamburg University, Malte Rehbein from Passau University, Georg Vogeler from Graz University and Philipp Steinkrüger from Ruhr-University Bochum – have decided to award the prize to Mats Dahlström (University of Borås) and Wout Dillen (University of Antwerp) for their outstanding review of Litteraturbanken.
The review is an elegantly written text which not only provides all information required for the reader to familiarize themselves with the reviewed project, but which also engages in reflections on methodology, on the selection of texts, and on the question which type of text collection Litteraturbanken instantiates. The authors prove their expertise in the field, praising the project where it excels and criticising it where it falls short; it is to be expected that their suggestions of how to improve this already outstanding project will not fall on deaf ears.
