The OAH EBSCOhost America: History and Life Award is a biennial award given to recognize and encourage scholarship in American history in the journal literature advancing new perspectives on accepted interpretations or previously unconsidered topics. The award is not confined to any particular subject area or chronological period but instead seeks to recognize journal articles that display a pathbreaking character. Individuals as well as editors are encouraged to submit nominations. Each entry must be published during the period November 16, 2006, to November 15, 2008. The author of the winning article will receive $750. The award will be presented at the 2009 annual meeting of the OAH in Seattle, Washington, March 26-29, 2009. For more information, and instructions on how to apply, see the award page on the OAH’s web site. Deadline for submissions is December 1, 2008.
