Organization of American Historians (OAH) 2014 Richard W. Leopold Prize
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: OCTOBER 1, 2013
The Richard W. Leopold Prize is given biennially by the Organization of American Historians to the author or editor of the best book on foreign policy, military affairs, historical activities of the federal government, documentary histories, or biography written by a U.S. government historian or federal contract historian. These subjects cover the concerns and the historical fields of activity of the late Professor Leopold, who was president of the OAH 1976–1977.
The prize was designed to improve contacts and interrelationships within the historical profession where an increasing number of history-trained scholars hold distinguished positions in governmental agencies. The prize recognizes the significant historical work being done by historians outside academe.
Each entry must be published during the two-year period January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2013.
The award will be presented at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the OAH in Atlanta, Georgia, April 10–13.

SHAFR Syllabi and Assignments Initiative
SHAFR maintains on its web site a collection of syllabi and student assignments for courses in international history. Now that a new academic year has begun, we hope you will send your syllabi and assignments to us for posting. We’re interested in syllabi for any course in international history, whether chronological (e.g. U.S. involvement in world affairs since 1914) or thematic (e.g., the international history of the Cold War; gender and U.S. foreign policy). We’d like syllabi for courses that are taught at either the undergraduate or graduate level, as well as those that are primarily lecture or those that are colloquia. In addition, we’d like to encourage you to submit assignments that you give your students, including essays or work involving online resources. The addition of course materials to this collection will make it an even more valuable resource for the sharing of ideas about course structure, readings, and learning assignments. Submission of course materials as Word (.doc or .docx) documents is preferable. Please email syllabi and course materials to Nicole Phelps: [email protected].
