Nominations Open for 2021 CBHA Best Article in Canadian Business History Prize

The Canadian Business History Association, Canada’s leading organization for the study of business in Canada, invites submissions for its annual $1000 Award for Best Article in Canadian Business History. The prize committee encourages the submission of articles from all methodological perspectives, and from any journal or journalistic source (provided the article has the necessary diligence and detail). It is particularly interested in innovative studies that have the potential to expand the boundaries of the discipline. Scholars, publishers, journalists, and other interested parties may submit nominations. Eligible articles can have either a Canadian or an international focus, which includes a Canadian perspective. They must be written in English or French and be published during the year prior to the award.

To be eligible of the award, the author of the article and/or nominator must be a current member of the CBHA/ACHA. In the event that the article is co-authored, at least one of the authors must be a current member. For the 2022 award, articles published in 2021 will be considered. The prize includes a certificate, a $1000 award, and an announcement in the CBHA/ACHA newsletter The Prospectus.

Annually, the prize may be announced and awarded at the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Historical Association (June), though it may be announced prior to that event.

An electronic copy of the article must accompany a nomination and be submitted to the CBHA/ACHA Prize Coordinator, Professor Dimitry Anastakis, University of Toronto, Department of History, dimitry.anastakis@utoronto.ca. The deadline for nominations is February 28, 2022.
