In the pursuit of these goals, /History of the Human Sciences /publishes traditional humanistic studies as well work in the social sciences, including the fields of sociology, psychology, political science, the history and philosophy of science, anthropology, classical studies, and literary theory. Scholars working in any of these fields are encouraged to apply. Scholars of any nationality who have either not yet been awarded a PhD or are no more than five years from its award are welcome to submit entries. The judging panel will use the definition of “active years”, with time away from academia for parental leave, health problems, or other relevant reasons not counting towards the definition of eligibility. The winner of the prize will be awarded £250 and have their essay published in History of the Human Sciences. Scholars who wish to be considered for the award are asked to submit an up-to-date CV (a maximum of two pages in length and including a statement that confirms eligibility for the award) and an essay, based on original research, that is a maximum of 12,000 words long (including footnotes and references) to email@example.com by 31^st January 2020.
