The Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies solicits submissions for the annual A. H. de Oliveira Marques Prize. The A. H. de Oliveira Marques Prize was created by means of a generous endowment from Dr. Harold B. Johnson, of the University of Virginia, in memory of the distinguished Portuguese historian, A. H. de Oliveira Marques (1933-2007). The prize, which carries an honorarium of $250, will be awarded each year for the best peer-reviewed article or book chapter on Portuguese history published during the previous year. This year's award will be announced at the 2016 annual meeting of the Association for Spanish and Portuguese History in San Diego, California. Submitted articles or book chapters may be written in Portuguese, English, Castilian, Catalan, Italian, or French, but only articles on Portuguese history published within the 2015 calendar year will be considered. Authors must be active members of the ASPHS to be eligible.
Authors must submit (1) one electronic copy (via email) and one paper copy of the article or chapter, (2) a short (2-page) CV, including current address, and (3) a document confirming that the article or chapter has been peer-reviewed. These materials must be sent to each of the three members of the prize committee below. Submissions must be received by all members of the committee by 10 January 2016.
