The Society for Historians of the Early American Republic invites submissions for the SHEAR Dissertation Prize. 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, or cultural history.


Dissertations successfully defended in calendar years 2016 and 2017 are eligible. To submit, please first send the dissertation table of contents, introduction, sample chapter, and a 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 1, 2018.


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, co-sponsored by the McNeil Center for Early American Studies and the University of Pennsylvania Press.
