The CJH/ACH Linda F. Dietz Prize

Dear Canadian Society for the Study of Religion Staff and Volunteers,

As the spring term comes to an end, we wanted to reach out to you about the Linda F. Dietz Prize. While it is only open to Canadian graduate students, we welcome submissions on all areas of history. Not every piece makes it to the peer review process, yet this is an excellent opportunity for graduate authors to become familiar with the rigours of publication.

If you have graduate students in your society, could you please post this on relevant forums or mailing lists for us? We also encourage your members who are working with graduate students to take this as a mentorship opportunity to help up-and-coming scholars prepare an article for submission. I’ve included short bilingual text below as well as a promotional PDF. Please distribute whichever way is easiest for your platforms.

Best wishes,
Rilla Friesen
Managing editor

Each year the Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d’histoire offers the Linda F. Dietz Prize — $500 and publication of the winning article. The Linda F. Dietz prize is awarded to the best submission written in either French or English by a Canadian graduate student. The article must incorporate original research and meet the scholarly standards of the CJH/ACH. There are no chronological or geographical limits on the content; we welcome submissions from all fields of historical study. Submissions are assessed by the editor to evaluate eligibility prior to double-blind peer review.

Deadline: August 15
