Grant Goodman Prize in Philippine Historical Studies

Call for Nominations
Grant Goodman Prize in Philippine Historical Studies

The Philippine Studies Group (PSG) of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) is once again pleased to announce the request for nominations for the Grant Goodman Prize, awarded every two years for outstanding contributions to Philippine historical studies. The Prize was established in 1990 with a generous gift from Grant Goodman, Professor Emeritus, Department of History, University of Kansas, and was first awarded in 1994 to Father John Schumacher, SJ. Other recipients have been John Larkin, Vicente Rafael, Resil Mojares, Alfred W. McCoy, and most recently, Reynaldo Ileto.
The Prize is intended to recognize scholars who have made a ‚Äúsubstantial contribution‚ÄĚ to the field of Philippine history or historical studies. There are no citizenship or residency requirements; it is open to all scholars, across the academic disciplines, providing that their work is innovative and incorporates a strong historical perspective. Recipients are chosen by a committee elected by the Philippine Studies Group.
The committee now seeks nominations for the Prize, which we hope will be awarded at the next AAS meeting to be held in San Diego, California, March 21-24, 2013. Letters of nomination should include the nominee's name, institutional affiliation, curriculum vitae, and a brief statement about why he or she merits the award. Re-nomination of previous nominees is encouraged, but should be accompanied by an up-to-date curriculum vitae.
Nominations should be sent electronically by 1 February 2013 to: Vina Lanzona (vlanzona@hawaii.edu), Chair, Selection Committee, with copies to Norman Owen (ngowen@nc.rr.com), Susan Russell (srussell@niu.edu), and Resil Mojares (mojares.resil@gmail.com).
