Call for Submissions: 2012 Allan Bérubé Prize
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - award, prize

Call for Submissions: 2012 Allan Bérubé Prize

The Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History, an affiliate society of the American Historical Association, has established the Allan Bérubé Prize to recognize outstanding work in public or community-based lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer history. While books or essays written for a broad audience are eligible for consideration, we are looking in particular to recognize other types of historical work, including -- but not limited to:
  • websites, blogs, podcasts, and other online media
  • documentary film and video
  • archival and oral history projects
  • museum and other curated public exhibitions and installations
  • walking tours
  • radio programming
  • organizational/program development efforts whose primary audiences are not academic specialists.
Scholarly publications that politically intervene in the relationship between academic and public/community-based history may also be considered. While academically affiliated scholars may apply based on public or community-oriented projects, individuals with a history of independent or community-based work will be given priority and are especially encouraged to apply.

The 2012 Bérubé Prize, which is underwritten by the GLBT Historical Society (San Francisco, Calif.), will recognize excellence in work completed in the previous two calendar years (2010 and 2011). Projects by individuals, groups, community organizations, or other organizations may be nominated. Individuals or organizational entities responsible for the project should nominate themselves.

Nominations and supporting materials should specifically address three criteria:
(1) the creativity and/or originality of the approach; (2) the quality of historical research and interpretation resulting from the use of material culture, oral history, or any other type of historical evidence; and, (3) the social, cultural, civic, and/or intellectual impact of the project.

Procedures and Submission Requirements

1. Nominations should be submitted in the form of a project abstract (not to exceed 250 words) and a written narrative (not to exceed 1,500 words). The narrative should clearly address the three criteria, and, identify the project’s intended audiences.

2. Nominations for projects such as DVDs, videos, CDs, etc. should include copies of the production, submitted with the written narrative and other materials. Other types of nominated projects should include documentation appropriate to the form of historical work involved, e.g., exhibition guides/catalogs, walking tour maps, and photographs of installations. For online projects, the submitted materials should clearly identify the URLs for committee members to read/listen to the historical materials.

3. Nominations should include pertinent supporting documents, such as a copy of the nominee's resume or curriculum vitae if available. If the nominee is an organization or institution, information on its governance, mission, and size should also be provided. Formal reviews from newspapers, magazines, professional journals, or other evidence of public feedback is encouraged but not required.

4. A total of four copies of all submission materials are required. Send one set of application materials to each of the four following Prize Committee members:
