Nominations invited for BSHS Pickstone Prize 2018

Nominations are invited for the British Society for the History of Science’s prestigious Pickstone Prize for 2018.

The Prize aims to recognize pioneering works that advance the scholarly understanding and interpretation of the scientific past. In focusing on academic books, it complements the Society’s Dingle Prize, which rewards engagement with broader audiences.

Established in 2014 with the help of the budget surplus from the 2013 International Congress of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine, it honours the memory of our colleague Professor John Pickstone (1944–2014).

Books published in English in 2016 and 2017 are eligible for consideration. Both single-authored and multiple-authored books are eligible, but not edited collections.

Nominations can be made by anyone.  Self-nominations are allowed, as are multiple nominations by a single nominator. Nominations must be available as printed books.

Please send your nomination(s) by 23:59 on 28th February to: [email protected]

An announcement of the winning title will be made via the BSHS President’s Newsletter then posted on the BSHS website. The author will be asked to give a lecture based on its contents at the ESHS Meeting in September or on another mutually convenient occasion.
