The American Society for Legal History is inviting submissions for the Kathryn T. Preyer Scholars Competition. Each of two winners will present their paper at the Society's annual meeting in Baltimore on November 16-19, 2006. These scholars will receive a $250 cash award and reimbursement of expenses, up to $750, for travel to the meeting, hotel, and meals.
Submissions are welcome on any legal, institutional and/or constitutional aspect of American history. Graduate students, law students, and other early-career scholars who have presented no more than two papers at a national conference are eligible to apply.
Submissions should include a c.v. of the author, contact information, and a complete draft of the paper. One of the criteria for selection will be the suitability of the paper for reduction to a twenty-minute oral presentation. The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2006. Submissions (preferably in Word) should be sent to the Committee members: Lyndsay Campbell (email@example.com), Christine Desan (firstname.lastname@example.org), Sarah Barringer Gordon (email@example.com), Maeva Marcus (DocHistSC@aol.com), and Laura Kalman, chair (firstname.lastname@example.org).
