Grant of the Week: 2014 Berkshire Conference of Women Historians’ Book Prizes
The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians invites book editors and authors to submit books published in the year 2014 for consideration for the Berkshire Conference Book Prizes.
Description of Prizes
The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians awards two book prizes:
- For a first book written by a woman normally resident in North America, awarded to a book that deals substantially with the history of women, gender, and/or sexuality.
- For a first book in any field of history written by a woman who is normally resident in North America, awarded to a book that does not focus on the history of women, gender, and/or sexuality.
Textbooks, juvenile literature, documentary collections, fiction, poetry, and collections of essays are not eligible for either prize.
For this year’s competition, each entry must have been published during the period January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014.
