Ezio Cappadocia Prize in Italian History

The Society for Italian Historical Studies, affiliated with the American Historical Association, again offers the EZIO CAPPADOCIA PRIZE of $400 for the best unpublished manuscript on the history of Italy, of dissertation length. Since the object of the award is to encourage fresh interest in Italian history, the prize is offered for the first study in the field by a scholar who has received the Ph.D. since January 1, 2014.

Only manuscripts that are judged worthy of scholarly publication will be considered. Acceptance of a study for publication during the period of competition will not debar it from consideration. Scholars and students regularly resident in the United States or in Canada are eligible for the award. The Society reserves the right to withhold the prize if no manuscript deemed worthy is submitted. Do not send recommendations.
The award will be announced at the January 2016 meeting of the Society for Italian Historical Studies.

One copy of the work, with a brief vita, should be sent in hard copy to each of the following committee members. These must be received no later than August 1, 2015. A second copy of the work and brief vita should be sent by email to the same committee members. Those wishing to have their manuscripts returned should mention it:
