The Barrington Medal is awarded under the auspices of the Barrington Trust (founded in 1836 by the bequest of John Barrington). The award is intended to recognise promising younger researchers in social sciences in Ireland. This will be the 163rd anniversary of the lecture series and the recipient will be the one hundred and twenty-fifth Barrington Lecturer. The award is a silver medal and €1,000.
The lecture should be based on a paper of not more than 7,500 words addressing a topic of relevance to economic or social policy and of current interest in Ireland. Candidates, who are within 10 years of completing a primary degree (or not more than 33 years of age), should submit a detailed abstract of approximately 1,000 words on the proposed lecture. They should also submit a short curriculum vitae and the name of a proposer who is familiar with their work. Entries should be sent by the 29 July 2011 to
