Morris D. Forkosch Prize

The Journal of the History of Ideas will award the Morris D. Forkosch Prize ($2000) for the best book in intellectual history published in 2009.

The awards committee favors books which are published in English and which display some interdisciplinary range, demonstrate sound scholarship, and make an original contribution to the history of thought and culture.

Submissions are limited to the first book published by any author and to books published in English (no translations or collections of essays) pertaining to one or more of the major disciplines associated with "intellectual history" broadly conceived: viz., history (including the history of various arts and sciences), philosophy (including the philosophy of science, aesthetics, and other fields), political thought (including economics, social science and anthropology), and literature (including literary criticism and theory). The judges will favor publications displaying sound scholarship, original conceptualization, and significant chronological and interdisciplinary scope.

The Journal of the History of Ideas is pleased to announce the winner of the Morris D. Forkosch Prize ($2000) for the best book in intellectual history published in 2009: Stephen Perkinson, for his The Likeness of the King: A Prehistory of Portraiture in Late Medieval France (University of Chicago Press).

The Journal of the History of Ideas is pleased to announce the winner of the Selma V. Forkosch Prize ($500) for the best article published in the Journal of the History of Ideas each year. The winner for 2008 is Anna Guillemin, "The Style of Linguistics: Aby Warburg, Karl Vossler, and Hermann Osthoff," Volume 69, Number 4, pages 605-26.
