The SIHS Article Prize for Medieval and Early Modern Italian History will be awarded to the best English-language, peer-reviewed journal article made public (either in published form or on a “FirstView platform”) in the calendar year 2020 on Italian history broadly defined by an early career author. The time period for “Medieval-Early Modern” includes roughly from the sixth century to the Napoleonic Wars. Geographical scope and disciplinary methodology are defined in the broadest possible terms. Early career refers to anyone who is in the process of completing their PhD or anyone who was within six years of completion when the article was made public. Only members of the Society of Italian Historical Studies (SIHS) will be considered.
To apply, send a PDF version of the published or FirstView article, along with a one-page PDF version of your CV (indicating when your PhD was or will be completed) to the SIHS prize committee at SIHS.email@example.com no later than June 1 of the current year. The prize consists of a $100 monetary reward, as well as a feature on the SIHS website including comments on why the article was selected and an interview with the author published on the SIHS website.
The award will be presented at the annual SIHS meeting at the American Historical Association in January 2022.
