New SHS Public History Prize

The Social History Society has launched a new prize to recognise activities that enhance public understanding of social and cultural history. The prize has been established as a mark of gratitude to Professor Pamela Cox, who was tireless in efforts to open dialogue with different audiences while chair of the Social History Society.

The Pamela Cox Public History Prize will be awarded to a postgraduate student or an early career researcher who can demonstrate excellence in taking their research beyond the academy. It will provide one year’s free membership of the SHS, a full bursary to attend our annual conference and a showcase of their work on our Community Exchange blog.

There are no restrictions on the format of activity undertaken and we will accept nominations from individual postgraduates students and early career researchers, their supervisors, or any member of the Social History Society. The person nominated does not even need to be a current member of the Society.

Nominations for the 2020 prize will close on 1 February. You can find out more, and download a nomination form, on the Public History Prize webpage.
