William and Edwyna Gilbert Award
The William and Edwyna Gilbert Award for the Best Article on Teaching History recognizes annually outstanding contributions to the teaching of history through the publication of journal articles. The prize was endowed by a generous gift from Mrs. William Gilbert in memory of her husband, a distinguished member of the history department at the University of Kansas, and further donated to following Mrs. Gilbert's death in May of 2011.
Articles by AHA members, published between June 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013, may be nominated for consideration. Both the author of the winning article and the journal that publishes it will each receive $1,000. Journals and individual members may submit nominations on the teaching of history (including scholarship of teaching and learning, methodology and theory of pedagogy). Journals, magazines, and other serials can submit up to two articles for each award cycle. Each nominator is required to provide a brief letter of support (no more than two pages) with the article.
