The Social History Society has been encouraging and promoting innovative scholarship since founded in 1974. Nearly two years the Executive Committee decided that, to this end, we should establish a new Social History Society Book Prize. After reviewing all the submissions, the judges have unanimously decided on the inaugural winner.
We are delighted to announce that the winner of the 2018 Social History Society Book Prize is ‘Sleep in Early Modern England’ by Sasha Handley, published by Yale University Press.
The prize will be awarded at the upcoming Social History Society conference, which will be hosted by Keele University in June 2018.
