Canadian Political History Book Prize (2021)

Published on October 28, 2020

The Canadian Historical Association’s Political History Group (PHG) is pleased to announce the Canadian Political History Book Prize competition. The prize will be awarded in 2021 for an outstanding, well-written book judged to have made an original, significant, and meritorious contribution to the field of Canadian political history. The PHG considers “Political History” in very broad terms, and encourages the study of politics, public policy, governance, the state, political economy, political sociology, civil society, elections, social movements and their activism, foreign policy, international relations, legal history and other facets of political life from diverse theoretical and empirical approaches.

Eligible books must have been published between 1 December 2019 and 30 November 2020. The award will be given in June 2021 at the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Historical Association.

The prize will not be awarded if there are fewer than four nominations; however, any books submitted will be considered in the following year's competition.

Authors are invited to submit copies of their books directly to each member of the prize committee or to contact their publishers and ask them to submit copies of their books on their behalf. The deadline for submissions is 31 January 2021.

Considering the current pandemic, it’s not easy for all of the members of the jury to access their institutional office and mail, and to know if this situation is going to change between now and the deadline for submissions. In consequence, we invite the authors and editors to contact the members of the jury through email to ask them at which address they’d like to receive the books submitted for the prize.
