Not From Here Graduate Student Awards
The graduate student authors of the best three digital publications will receive a yearlong student membership to the IEHS, and the best publication out of the three will receive an award of $100 and recognition at the IEHS Awards ceremony in addition to a yearlong membership to the society.
Awards will be given at the end of each academic school year around the mont of June. For the year of 2021, the self-nomination deadline for graduate students’ articles to be considered for awards is June 15th. The selection criteria will be based on the writers’ creative use of the digital platform, their adeptness in Op-Ed (non-academic) style language, their engagement with current politics/activism, and their depth and innovation in historical research.
The selection committee will be the two digital humanities interns, R. Bryan Zehngut-Willits, Chienyn Chi, as well as the acting president of IEHS.
You are eligible if you have submitted and published at least one article for Not From Here during an academic school year. You would need to be a graduate student when the article was first submitted. You would also need to self nominate one article to the editor of Not From Here by a yearly designated deadline.
How to be Considered for the Award?
The publication of your article automatically enters you into the contest of the awards. If you have more than one publication in an academic school year, you must select and nominate one of your articles to be considered for the competition by the end of the year publication deadline. If you fail to email the editor of Not From Here, Chienyn Chi at firstname.lastname@example.org, your selected article before the publication deadline, you will not be considered for the award.
