The Economic History Society awards a prize of £1,000, on a biennial basis, for the best first monograph in Economic and/or Social History. Eligibility for the prize is normally restricted to books published within 10 years of the author having been awarded a PhD, although allowances can be made for authors who have had a career break (e.g. for parental leave).
Only monographs published in English and published during 2022 and 2023 will be eligible for the 2024 prize.
A copy of the author’s full CV, which should include a current email address, and three copies of the book under consideration must be submitted with the application. The books cannot be returned to the author.
The winner of the First Monograph Prize will be announced at the annual conference.
