The CCWH (Coordinating Council for Women in History) has established a new prize to be awarded from 2016.
The Carol Gold Best Article Award is named for longtime member, activist and scholar, Carol Gold whose life and work exemplify the dual mission of the CCWH—to promote women’s history and to support women in the historical profession. Gold has written extensively on early modern European women’s history and has mentored and supported students and peers during her long career. The Carol Gold Best Article Award is a $500 prize given to the best article published in a peer-reviewed journal in the year prior to the award year (so in 2015 for the 2016 award). Applicants must have achieved the rank of Associate Professor at the time of publication and applicants must be current members of the CCWH at the time of application. The deadline for the award is 15 May 2016. Please go to www.theccwh.org for membership and online application details.
