Call for Nominations for Twentieth Anniversary Emerging Scholars Prize

The Institute for the Humanities at the University of Michigan calls for nominations for its Twentieth Anniversary Emerging Scholars Prize. This year they are extending the prize to applicants from PhD-granting member institutions of the CHCI. The prize carries a $25,000 stipend with no strings attached other than the requirement that the successful applicant will give a talk at the Institute for the Humanities during the academic year 2009-10. They seek nominations of up to two candidates from each member institutionof the CHCI that grants PhDs. A candidate is eligible for nomination if he or she has earned a PhD from your institution between the period January 2004 through December 2008. The candidate's scholarly work must be in the humanities, interpreted as broadly as possible.

Nominations due November 15, 2008
