Louise Pubols Public History Prize

The Western History Association Council, in coordination with the WHA Public History Committee, created the Louise Pubols Public History Prize to honor her prize-winning publications, landmark exhibitions, and extraordinary service to the WHA. In keeping with Louise's deep commitment to public history, the Pubols Prize will support the attendance of a public historian to the WHA's annual meeting. 

The prize will include complimentary registration, a ticket to the Awards Banquet, and $500 to offset travel expenses to this year's WHA Conference. Eligibility for the prize includes:

1. Applicants must be on the 2018 WHA Conference Program (taking place in San Antonio, Texas, October 17-20, 2018)

2. Applicants must be a practicing public historian and demonstrate that they are without access to institutional support for conference travel.

To apply, please send a letter of application (no more than 500 words) stating your experience as a public historian and a cv. Applications must be submitted to each member of the award committee. Emailed applications are preferred by the 2018 Committee, however paper submissions will also be accepted.

Award Application Deadline: August 5, 2018

The award recipient will be notified by September 15.
