Charles Schmitt Prize in Intellectual History - Deadline: Dec. 31, 2010


As the result of generous donations from an anonymous donor, the Istanbul Bilgi
University, and Routledge, the International Society for Intellectual History is
offering, on an annual basis, a prize to honour the contribution of the late Charles
Schmitt to intellectual history. The prize is £500, £50 worth of Routledge books,
and a year’s free membership of the ISIH with a subscription to the quarterly
Intellectual History Review. The paper awarded the prize will also be published in
the Intellectual History Review.

Submissions will be accepted in any area of intellectual history, broadly construed,
1500 to the present, including the historiography of intellectual history. Because
it is a condition of the award that the paper awarded the prize will be published by
IHR, submissions should not have been accepted for publication elsewhere.
Eligibility is restricted to graduate students and those who have submitted their
PhD within two years of the closing date for the prize. The paper should be
forwarded as an e-mail attachment to and to The e-mail itself should state that the paper is being entered
for the prize, and should confirm eligibility at the time of submission, as well as
availability of the paper for publication (since it is a condition of award that the
paper be published in IHR).

The closing date for the prize is 31 December 2010, and an announcement of the award
will be made in early 2011
