Essay Competition

To mark the centenary of the birth of James Baldwin, the great African American writer and civil rights activist, in August 2024, the Webster Review of International History will host its inaugural essay competition aimed at UK undergraduates and UK Sixth Form students. 


This competition invites students to critically engage with the themes of race and gender in their past and contemporary development, reflecting James Baldwin’s status as a Black, queer icon, and his relevance both in his own time and in the modern day.


Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 3 entries in both the University and Sixth Form categories. Winning entries will also be published on the Webster Blog.
