GRANT GOODMAN PRIZE IN PHILIPPINE HISTORICAL STUDIES
The Philippine Studies Group (PSG) of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) is again pleased to request nominations for the Grant Goodman Prize, awarded every two years for outstanding contributions to Philippine historical studies. The deadline for the receipt of new nominations and supporting material is February 15, 2021.
The Prize was established in 1990 with a generous gift from the late Professor Grant Goodman of the Department of History at the University of Kansas. The first award was made in 1994 to Father John Schumacher, SJ. Recipients in subsequent award cycles have included John A. Larkin, Resil Mojares, Alfred W. McCoy, Vicente Rafael, Reynaldo Ileto, James Warren, Nicanor Tiongson, Michael Cullinane, and Mina Roces. The Prize is intended to recognize scholars who have during their academic career thus far made a substantial contribution to the field of Philippine history or historically related studies. There are no citizenship or residency requirements; it is open to all scholars, across academic disciplines, providing their work is innovative and incorporates a strong historical perspective. Recipients are chosen by a committee selected by the Philippine Studies Group.
The committee seeks new nominations for the Prize, which will be awarded at the next AAS meeting to be held in March 2021. New nominations must include:
- A brief statement by the nominator about why the nominee merits the award.
- The nominee’s current curriculum vitae
- The nominee’s name, institutional affiliation, and contact information
Nominations from the prior three award cycles (2014/15, 2016/17, and 2018/19) will receive consideration without re-nomination being required, though an up-to-date CV submitted by the nominator with, perhaps, an updated nomination letter would aid the committee in its considerations.
New nominations and up-to-date CVs of nominees from the past three cycles should be sent electronically and be received by February 15, 2021.
