The McNeil Center for Early American Studies is pleased to announce the fifth annual Zuckerman Prize in American Studies, given in honor of Hyman Zuckerman and Henrietta Zuckerman Landis, parents of University of Pennsylvania Professor of History Emeritus Michael Zuckerman.
The Zuckerman prize offers $2,000 for the best dissertation connecting American history (in any period) with literature and/or art. Only unpublished dissertations formally accepted between 1 January 2012 and 31 December 2013 qualify for the prize. Submissions will be evaluated for the seriousness and originality with which the dissertation engages relationships among history, art and/or literature, the significance of the treatment to scholarship in the field, and the overall quality of the writing.
Applicants should submit a pdf copy of the entire dissertation, and should request a confidential letter from the dissertation director commenting on the intellectual significance of the work, to be uploaded or sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be notified in late spring and announced at the MCEAS final seminar in May.
All materials must be submitted online by 15 December 2013 at http://mceas.org/zuckerman.shtml
