2004 FHHS Dissertation Prize: Call for Submissions

The Forum for History of Human Science (an interest group affiliated with the History of Science Society) invites submissions for its Dissertation Prize, which is awarded every other year for best recent dissertation on some aspect of the history of the human sciences. The prize, to which a US $100 monetary award is attached, alternates annually in rotation with the Forum’s prize for the best published article. The winner of the 2004 Dissertation Prize will be announced at the 2004 History of Science Society meeting, which will be held 18-21 November 2004 in Austin, Texas. Winners are publicized in the FHHS Newsletter and in newsletters and journals of several other organizations (among them, HSS and Cheiron).

Entries are encouraged from authors in any discipline, as long as the work is related to the history of the human sciences, broadly construed. To be eligible, the dissertation must have been filed within the three years previous to the year of the award (that is during the years 2001-2003, inclusive, for the prize awarded in autumn 2004). Three copies of entries must be received by June 1, 2004. Send them to:
