The Urban History Association Invites Submissions for Prizes

AHA Staff, April 2005

The Urban History Association (UHA) invites submissions to be considered for the award of the association's various prizes, which will be conferred at the UHA's 17th annual dinner in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 8, 2006 (during the annual meeting of the American Historical Association). All works to be considered—books, essays, and dissertations—must be in English or in English translation. Membership in the UHA is not a requirement for eligibility. All submissions should be accompanied only by a single sheet containing contact information for the author—current mailing and e-mail addresses and telephone number(s). Letters of recommendation and endorsement are discouraged. The sole criterion will be the quality of the submission. The submissions (three copies in every case) must reach the specified addressee by June 15, 2005.

Book prizes. The UHA will award a prize of $500 for the best book in North American urban history with a publication date of 2004. Three copies of the books should be submitted to Roger Biles, Department of History, East Carolina University Greenville, NC 27858.
