The Broad of Trustees of the Journal of Women's History is proud to announce that the prize for the best paper in women's history authored by a graduate student has returned. Given the pandemic, we are happy to feature this prize once again. Article-length essays in any chronological and geographical field are eligible; we especially encourage submissions with a focus beyond the United States or Western Europe. Papers should not exceed 10,000 words, including endnotes, and should follow the University of Chicago Manual of Style. Please also submit an abstract of no more than 150 words that summarizes the argument and significance of the work. We seek work that has broad significance for the field of women’s history in general, addresses issues that transcend the particulars of the case, breaks new ground conceptually or methodologically, and employs sources creatively.
Papers should be submitted electronically, along with a cover letter specifying the author’s graduate advisor, program, and status (i.e., year in program, ABD, etc.), by 11:59pm ET April 17, 2023 to the chair of the committee: Tiffany N. Florvil, prize committee chair, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winning author will receive a $1000 award, and the possibility of publication in the Journal of Women’s History. The prize will be awarded at the Berkshire Conference of Women’s History, 28 June-2 July 2023, Santa Clara University, California.
