SOUTHERN JEWISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY BOOK PRIZE FOR 2003
The Southern Jewish Historical Society (SJHS) announces the establishment of a prize for the book that makes the most significant contribution to the field of Jewish history of the American South. The winner will receive $500 and will be the guest of the Society at its annual conference, where the prize will be presented.
The prize will be awarded every four years. This round of submissions is for books published between Jan. 1, 1999 and Dec. 31, 2002.
Books must focus on Jewish history within the southern United States, defined for the purposes of this competition as the former Confederate states as well as the border states. Works examining the history of Southern Jews within the broader history of the South, or within the history of American Jews in general will also be considered.
All submissions must be non-fiction and may include standard monographs, memoirs, biographies, and edited collections. Books must be in English and must be original works. Works outside the field of history, as well as reprints, reissues, or updated versions of earlier works will not be considered.
Publishers or authors should submit three (3) copies of books meeting the above criteria to the address below.
All submissions must be received by March 31, 2003. Entries will be judged by an independent committee of scholars, consisting of Dr. Eric L. Goldstein of Emory University (Chair), Dr. Marc Lee Raphael of the College of William and Mary, and Dr. Stephen J. Whitfield of Brandeis University. The winner will be announced in advance of the SJHS's annual conference in Memphis, Tennessee, to be held Oct. 30-Nov. 2, 2003. Submissions cannot be returned to the applicant.
