The Editorial Board of the Journal of Women’s History has announced the initiation of a biennial prize for the best article manuscript in the field of women’s history authored by a graduate student. Manuscripts in any chronological and geographical area are welcome. They seek work that has broad significance for the field of women’s history in general by addressing issues that transcend the particulars of the case or by breaking new ground methodologically. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, along with a cover letter specifying the author’s graduate advisor, program, and status (i.e., year in program, ABD, etc.), by March 1, 2012 to each member of the committee: Durba Ghosh (firstname.lastname@example.org); Pamela Scully (email@example.com); and Judith Zinsser (firstname.lastname@example.org). The winning author will receive $3,000, and the article will be published in the Journal of Women’s History.
