> Announcing the SHEAR Dissertation Prize for 2015
> The Society for Historians of the Early American Republic invite submissions for the SHEAR Dissertation Prize for 2015. The Prize will be awarded to an exceptional dissertation pertaining to the history of North America from 1776 to 1861. Within that period, the dissertation may treat virtually any aspect of history, including political, social, cultural, or literary history.
> Dissertations successfully defended in calendar years 2013 and 2014 are eligible. To submit a dissertation for consideration, please first send a one-page letter of inquiry accompanied by a brief prospectus (including chapter summaries), sample chapter, and current CV to:
> Robert Lockhart
> Senior Editor
> University of Pennsylvania Press
> 3905 Spruce Street
> Philadelphia, PA 19104
> The deadline for submission of preliminary materials is February 15, 2015.
> The prize committee will then invite finalists to send complete dissertations for consideration, and the winner will be announced at SHEAR's annual conference in July, where a workshop with the prize committee will also be held. The author will receive a publishing contract, and the manuscript will be published as a volume in the book series Early American Studies, cosponsored by the McNeil Center for Early American Studies and the University of Pennsylvania Press.
