UM Press/HASTAC Publication Prize for Notable Work in the Digital Humanities (2009)

In conjunction with the launch of the UM Series in Digital Humanities, the University of Michigan and the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory (HASTAC) are pleased to announce the UM Press/HASTAC Digital Humanities Publication Prize. The prize will be awarded for an innovative and important project that displays a critical and rigorous engagement in the field of Digital Humanities.

Eligible projects will be peer reviewed with the winner determined by the HASTAC Steering Committee, the general editors and the advisory board of the University of Michigan Press Series in Digital Humanities. The series editors are Julie Thompson Klein (Wayne State University), Tara McPherson (University of Southern California) and Tom Finholt (University of Michigan). The series advisory board members are Cathy Davidson (Duke University), Sidonie Smith (University of Michigan), Daniel Herwitz (University of Michigan), Wendy Chun (Brown University), and Kathleen Fitzpatrick (Pomona College).

For initial consideration, authors should provide via e-mail a prospectus of the completed manuscript or emergent work describing its goals, intended audience, and significance, as well as a C.V. and sample material. Final determination by the prize committee will be based on a review of a completed manuscript or a detailed prospectus, work plan, and sample material for projects.

The prize recipient will be announced on the HASTAC and UM Press websites. The winning submission will be published by the University of Michigan Press in the UM Digital Humanities Series under the digitalculturebooks imprint in print and digital formats.
