ISHPES is currently accepting applications for the 2016 Junior Scholar Award. The ISHPES GIGLIOLA GORI JUNIOR SCHOLAR AWARD will be presented at the 2016 ISHPES Seminar to be held in Paris, France, 29 June-2 July 2016.
It is awarded for an unpublished essay of outstanding quality in the field of sport history. Eligible scholars must be a member of ISHPES and a registered student (undergraduate or graduate) at the time of the Congress or a junior scholar (within one year of receiving a PhD). The essay must be submitted in English and the text itself (including notes and bibliography) must not exceed 10,000 words.
The main criteria for selection will be based on originality, the scientific quality of the research and the value of the study from the perspective of international sport history. A specially chosen committee will review the articles.
Gigliola Gori, a leading sport historian in Italy and longtime member of ISHPES, as well as one of its current Vice-Presidents, has very generously donated a 1000 € prize for the ISHPES Junior Scholar Award. This award is intended to promote emerging scholarship among young scholars of sport history world-wide through the organizational support of ISHPES and its members.
