Sent: 21 October 2013 11:33 Subject: Gutman Prize for Outstanding Dissertation in Labor and Working-Class History, LAWCHA (Deadline: January 3rd, 2014) Herbert G. Gutman Prize for Outstanding Dissertation http://lawcha.org/wordpress/grants-prizes/ The Labor and Working Class History Association (LAWCHA) is pleased to announce its seventh annual Dissertation Prize. This prize has been established with the cooperation with the University of Illinois Press. LAWCHA, founded in 1998, encourages the study of working-class men and women, their lives, workplaces, communities, organizations, cultures, political activities, and societal contexts. It aims to promote an international, theoretically informed, comparative, interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, and diverse labor and working-class history. Its journal is the prize-winning LABOR: Studies in Working-Class History of the Americas. The prize is named in honor of the late Herbert G. Gutman, who was a pioneering labor historian in the U.S. and a founder of the University of Illinois Press’s “Working Class in American History” Series. LAWCHA hopes that the spirit of Gutman’s inquiry into the many facets of labor and working-class history will live on in this prize. The winner will receive a cash prize of $500 from LAWCHA and a publishing contract with the University of Illinois Press. The prize is contingent upon the author’s acceptance of the contract with the University of Illinois Press. Eligible dissertations must be in English, concerned with U.S. labor and working-class history broadly conceived, and must have been defended in the academic year 2012-13 (September 1, 2012-August 31, 2013).
