Grant of the Week: Eugen Weber Book Prize in French History
Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the Eugen Weber Book Prize in French History.
The UCLA Department of History invites submissions for the 2022 Eugen Weber Book Prize in French History. A prize for the best book in modern French history (post 1815), the award is named for eminent French historian Eugen Weber (1925-2007) who taught at UCLA for almost forty years.
The Eugen Weber Book Prize committee is made up of one UCLA faculty member and two other members, nominated by the AHA, French Historical Studies or the Western Society of French History. Books eligible for the 2022 prize are those published in 2019 or 2020. Nominations will be accepted from both authors and publishers, and nominated books may be published anywhere in the world in either English or French.
The Eugen Weber Book Prize in French History brings a cash award of $15,000. The Award winner will be announced at the American Historical Association annual meeting in January 2022. The winning author will be invited to visit UCLA to speak about his or her work and receive the prize during the spring of 2022.
