BSHS President Professor Greg Radick writes:
Another new initiative was the establishment this year of the BSHS John Pickstone Prize, to be awarded every two years for the best scholarly book in our field. The shortlist for the inaugural 2014 Prize will be announced shortly, and the winning book by the end of the year. Meanwhile, on the matter of BSHS prizes, postgraduate students and early-career researchers should note (or have brought to their attention please) the upcoming deadline of 15 December for essay submissions for the Society’s Singer Prize. More immediately there’s still time to submit applications for the current round of Research Grants and Special Project Grants, the deadline for which is 30 September.
