Call for Papers: Preyer Prize Panel on American Legal History
Submissions are welcome on any legal, institutional and/or constitutional aspect of American history and the history of the Atlantic World. Early career scholars, including those pursuing graduate or law degrees, those who have completed their terminal degree within the previous year, and those independent scholars at a comparable state, are eligible to apply. Papers already submitted to the ASLH Program Committee--whether or not accepted for an existing panel--and papers never previously submitted are equally eligible.
Submissions should include a curriculum vitae of the author, contact information, and a complete draft of the paper to be presented. The draft may be longer than could be presented in the time available at the meeting (twenty minutes) and should contain supporting documentation, but one of the criteria for selection will be the suitability of the paper for reduction to
a twenty-minute oral presentation. The deadline for submission is June 15, 2011. The Preyer Scholars will be named by August 1.
Kathryn T. Preyer Scholars will receive a $250 cash award and reimbursement of expenses up to $750 for travel, hotels, and meals. Each will present the paper that s/he submitted to the competition at the Society's annual meeting in Atlanta, GA, on November 10-13, 2011.
Please send electronic submissions to the chair of the Preyer Committee, Christine Desan, firstname.lastname@example.org, cc'd to email@example.com. She will forward them to the other committee members.
