We invite historians and the editors of historical journals to submit articles published in the year 2012 for consideration for the Berkshire Conference Article Prizes. The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians now awards two Article Prizes:
For an article in any field of history published in 2012 by a woman who is normally resident in North America. This prize is not restricted by field.
For an article in the fields of the history of women, gender, and/or sexuality, published in 2012 by a woman who is normally resident in North America.
If appropriate, an article will be considered for both prizes. Three (3) copies of the article should be forwarded no later than January 15, 2013 to:
Department of History
318 Alumni Hall
Hamilton, NY 13346
We can accept photo-copies, offprints of the article, or pdf’s attached to email. If you are sending copies or offprints, please send three. Do not send the entire journal in which the article appears. Articles may be nominated by journal editors or by the author herself; journals may nominate more than one article. Jointly published articles are acceptable, as are articles that have appeared in collections, but only if they were published for the first time in 2012. They must not be reprints of articles published in previous years. Journals should indicate in a cover letter that they are submitting articles for the prize competition, and include a contact phone number and e-mail address at the journal. Author submissions should also include a contact address and email address. Winners are notified in early summer and will be publicly acknowledged in an official announcement on the Berkshire Conference website and other public sites. Each winning author shall also receive a $500 award.
