RCHS Junior Scholar’s Prize

The RCHS Junior Scholar’s Prize was instituted in 2012 by the Research Committe on History of Sociology (RC08) of the International Sociological Association.

Aim
The aim of the prize is to encourage research among junior scholars within the field of history of sociology.

The competition
The prize, consisting of €500, will be given biannually to the junior scholar who submits the best paper to a RCHS conference, i.e. to any of the sessions arranged by the RCHS in relation to the ISA World Congresses of Sociology or to the interim conferences.

Eligibility
Eligible are papers accepted to the RCHS conferences. Authors should be in the early stages of their careers, i.e. they should be either PhD candidates or their PhD degrees should not be more than three years old. Junior scholars are prohibited from sending in the same paper in two consecutive biannually meetings.

Submission
Submissions to the RCHS Junior Scholar’s Prize should include the paper in English and a short CV, and be sent via email in good time in advance of the conference. The specific deadline will be decided and announced in relation to the call for papers to the RCHS conferences.

Evaluation
The prize committee will consist of three jury members, of which at least the chairperson should be drawn from the RCHS Board.

Announcement
The winner of the prize will be announced by the jury at the RCHS Business Meeting at the RCHS conference.
