2014 SHA Student Paper Prize

The 13th Society for Historical Archaeology (SHA) Student Paper Prize will be awarded at the 47th Conference on Historical and Underwater Archaeology, to be held January 8-12, 2014 in Quebec City, Canada. The prize will be awarded to a student, or students, whose written version of a conference paper is judged superior in the areas of originality, research merit, clarity of presentation, professionalism, and of potential relevance to a considerable segment of the archaeological community. One prize will be awarded: The winning author(s) will receive a book prize consisting of titles donated by the many presses and organizations exhibiting in the SHA Conference Book Room (totaling almost $1,500 worth of items in 2013) and a letter of recognition from the SHA President. The winning author (s) will be encouraged to submit his or her paper to be reviewed for possible publication in Historical Archaeology. The results of the competition will be communicated to the entrants prior to the meeting and the winner will be announced at the annual business meeting.

The papers must be submitted by November 11, 2013. Competition guidelines on the SHA website: http://www.sha.org/documents/2014Studentpaperguidelines.pdf
