Location: Atlanta, GA

Application Deadline: July 01, 2016

Sponsoring Institution: The Forum for the History of Science in America


The Forum for the History of Science in America seeks nominations for the 2016 Philip J. Pauly Book Prize. The award, consisting of $500, is given for the best new scholarly book in English in the history of science in America, published in 2013, 2014, or 2015 by a first-time book author. The Prize will be awarded at the History of Science Society’s annual meeting in Atlanta this November.

The prize committee construes “America” very broadly, to include works situated geographically in any part of North or South America or the Caribbean, and/or narratives dealing principally with the scientific cultures or institutions of such places. Contributing chapters to edited volumes does not disqualify an author from the “first book” criterion.

Self-nominations are encouraged. Please contact Marc Rothenberg at in order to arrange to have copies of a nominated book sent to the prize committee. Copies must be received by July 1 in order to be considered.
