Submission Period Now Open for Mosse First Book Prize

Mosse Program logoThe submission period is now open for the George L. Mosse First Book Prize! The prize was established in 2020 to honor George L. Mosse’s commitment to scholarship and to mentoring new generations of historians. Winning books are published as part of the George L. Mosse Series in the History of European Culture, Sexuality, and Ideas with the University of Wisconsin Press, and the winning author receives a $5,000 prize. An honorable mention winner may also be selected to receive a $1,000 prize and publication.

The prize is open to original, previously unpublished monographs of historical scholarship in English (whether written in English or translated), and aims to support and engage early-career scholars writing on topics related to the history of European culture, sexuality, or ideas.

Proposals will be accepted until June 15th, 2022. A short list of finalists will be chosen in July 2022, and those manuscripts will be read by a jury of expert readers, who will select the winning project. The winner will be announced after successful peer review of the manuscript.

More details are available on the University of Wisconsin Press blog.
