History of the Human Sciences
Early career prize

History of the Human Sciences, the international journal of
peer-reviewed research, which provides the leading forum for work in the
social sciences, humanities, human psychology and biology that
reflexively examines its own historical origins and interdisciplinary
influences – is delighted to announce its new annual prize for early
career scholars. The intention of the award is to recognise a researcher
whose work best represents the journal’s aim
to critically examine traditional assumptions and preoccupations about
human beings, their societies and their histories in light of
developments that cut across disciplinary boundaries. 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 hhs@histhum.com  by
31^st January 2020.

For more details about the award, including submission guidelines,
please see the full call for entries on /History of the Human Science/'s
