Dear History Graduate Student Director:

I am writing to encourage you to nominate graduate students from your program for the Kele Award of the European History Section (EHS), Southern Historical Association. The purpose of the award is to foster participation in the EHS of the newest generation of European historians and to encourage their professional development. The award is named for Professor Max Kele (1936-1996), a longtime and active member of the EHS and a dedicated patron of the profession of history. Professor Kele earned his Ph.D. from Tulane University and taught at the University of Florida, Gainesville, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and Bradley University. The award offers a one-year European History Section membership and Southern Historical Association affiliate membership to superior graduate students.

Eligible European history students include M.A. students, Ph.D. candidates, new Ph.D.s, and post-doctoral fellows nominated by members of the Section or faculty members of Southern colleges and universities. Up to three candidates may be nominated from one university. (The EHS Treasurer approves the nominations if the number of nominations exceeds the available monies).

You are encouraged to nominate excellent students who would be interested in complimentary membership in the European History Section. This year’s SHA meeting will be held in Memphis, TN from November 19-22. The program can be viewed at thesha.org/<http://secure-web.cisco.com/1w9nMLUm7tPz0jdKT7sOEmnH6WOg3pDnVPC_7haIgyihSyrR8JYDHPJ_bwoHAPuWRSKKqiEEAVFyiv3-MdCJ-qppfsRKGVAgYp6tcW1wePHWWdXnCudqqKik0Hr3hR6qekQwgkcsLnKT3hBGemRCDyJUbxMUJ-zK-ehwYPYWBteJAMuMrgazPJGM2QAkJBC1ZiFJqqQ19aHzryA-RhaoYtTp16Vd8Z1ybTHb_nJ-DxLqjMzveesw0IziEBY8gtl0i3aWN4wY25mHsw2fLd7_ToY_V1MvhTsX3mQ6F_RTEBxwhuvZeCGMTqzACsK0e3IKx8pWhh6GHI0s088xUCQFT-kjv14PR31P_RAG65Pk7LSpCfExTB_rawdo8o1VqzKGfp4ogoeJLeM9xOMKBD-zzIA-dTLupWA5NQGiYJct2E3zZ-5cMes82Sq9N69dg5e01/http%3A%2F%2Fthesha.org%2F>.  It would be a great opportunity for your students to attend a professional conference and meet fellow historians. Kele Award winners will be recognized at the EHS luncheon.

You may nominate up to three students by sending the following items to me at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> and EHS Treasurer Dr. Jeffery Hankins at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>:

1. Nominees' name/s, fields of study, and contact information

2. A short, two-page CV highlighting the nominee's academic history and current research and/or a short writing sample such as a conference paper or dissertation chapter.

Please send nominations by May 15, 2020, and let me know if you have any questions.
