If you are an urban scholar who put a book, article, or dissertation out into the world in 2019, we encourage you to check out the Jackson, Hirsch, and Katz awards and consider applying.
The selection criteria for all awards is the same: significance, originality, quality of research, sophistication of methodology, clarity of presentation, cogency of arguments, and contribution to the field of urban history. Membership in the UHA is not required, but all works must be in English or in English translation. And all the awards have the same deadline of May 1, 2020!
Best of luck!
