Ezio Cappadocia Prize for Best Unpublished Manuscript

(Jun 11, 2014)

The Society for Italian Historical Studies, affiliated with the American Historical Association, again offers a prize of $400 for the Ezio Cappadocia Prize for Best Unpublished Manuscript on the history of Italy, of article or dissertation length. Since the object of the award is to encourage fresh interest in Italian history, the prize is offered for the first or second study in the field by a scholar who has received the Ph.D. since January 1, 2013. Competitors must be members of the SIHS.

Only essays or doctoral dissertations that are judged worthy of scholarly publication will be considered. Acceptance of a study for publication during the period of competition will not debar it from consideration. Scholars and students regularly resident in the United States or in Canada are eligible for the award. The Society reserves the right to withhold the prize if no manuscript deemed worthy is submitted. Do not send recommendations.

The award will be announced at the January 2015 meeting of the Society for Italian Historical Studies.

One copy of the work, with a brief vita, should be sent to each of the following committee members; they must be received no later than August 1, 2014. Those wishing to have their manuscripts returned should mention it.
