The American Society of Church History offers a number of awards and prizes each year. While many deadlines have already passed for this calendar year, nominations for the Jane Dempsey Douglass Prize are due this Friday (August 1, 2014). According to the ASCH website, the Jane Dempsey Douglass Prize is an annual award in the amount of $250
for the author of the best essay published during the previous calendar
year on any aspect of the role of women in the history of Christianity. (While this award may be of interest to RiAH readers, please keep in mind that it is open to any historical period and is not limited to an American focus only.)
Per ASCH guidelines, those who wish to make a nomination should send an e-mail to the Executive Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org). The nomination should include the following: 1) the author’s name; 2)
the author’s affiliation (or designation of "independent scholar," if
appropriate); 3) the author’s contact information (mailing address and
e-mail address); 4) the title of the author’s work; and (5) a copy of the article.
