The Social History Society has temporarily changed its prizes due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and cancellation of our conference.
We have postponed our usual Postgraduate Poster and Paper prizes and have introduced a Postgraduate Exchange prize in their place.
Our prizes recognise excellence in scholarship and knowledge exchange. They are celebrated at our annual conference and through our ‘Exchange’ blog.
The SHS Book Prize is for the best book (not the author’s first) in social or cultural history.
The Postgraduate Paper Prize is awarded by the SHS committee for the best paper by a postgraduate student at the SHS annual conference.
The Postgraduate Poster Prize is chosen by a public vote at the SHS annual conference.
The Pamela Cox Public History Prize is awarded to a postgraduate student or an early career researcher who can demonstrate excellence in taking their research beyond the academy.
