The Hungarian Studies Association is pleased to announce the Mark Pittaway Prize for best scholarly article or book chapter in Hungarian studies, to be awarded in December 2018. The award committee is seeking nominations or submissions of scholarly articles or book chapters in any field or discipline of Hungarian studies, published in English in 2016 or 2017. (Articles or books with a publication date of 2018 will be eligible in 2020.) The goal of HSA prizes is to recognize quality scholarship in Hungarian studies. The prize committee particularly encourages submissions of new findings and original scholarship by junior scholars who expand the field and will benefit from the prize early in their careers. The prize is named in memory of historian Mark Pittaway, who passed away in 2010.
Send nominations or submissions, including a PDF of the article or book chapter if possible, to the award committee: Robert Nemes, Department of History, Colgate University (firstname.lastname@example.org); Alexander Vari, Department of Social Sciences, Marywood University (email@example.com); and Jeff Pennington, Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, University of California, Berkeley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In the e-mail with your nomination or submission, please include a full bibliographic citation of the work. All nominations and submissions should be sent to the award committee no later than September 1, 2018. We understand that copyright rules apply, and we will only use the electronic copy for the purpose of adjudicating submissions for the award. The Hungarian Studies Association will announce the recipient of the Mark Pittaway Prize in December 2018 at its annual meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.
