The prize is £500, £50 worth of Routledge books, and a year’s membership of ISIH with a subscription to Intellectual History Review. The paper awarded the prize will be published in Intellectual History Review.

Submissions will be accepted in any area of intellectual history, broadly construed, 1500 to the present, including the historiography of intellectual history. Because it is a condition of the awardf that the paper awarded the prize will be published in IHR submissions should not have been accepted for publication elsewhere. Eligibility is restricted to graduate students and those who have submitted their PhD within two years of the closing date of the prize.

The paper should be forwarded as an email attachment to: [email protected] and to [email protected]. The email itself should state that the paper is being entered for the prize, and should confirm eligibility at the time of submission, as well as the availability of the paper for publication. The closing date for the prize is 31 December 2009, and the announcement of the award will be made in early 2010.
