In 1995, the friends of C. Clifford Flanigan established this prize in his memory. Clifford Flanigan (1941-1993) began teaching in the Comparative Literature Program at Indiana University in 1973. He was the department's main specialist in drama and medieval studies and a distinguished member of the Institute for Medieval Studies. The prize honors the best presentation given by a student in Comparative Literature in the C. Clifford Flanigan Memorial Colloquia Series organized by the Student Advisory Board.
