The Tibesar Prize

The Conference on Latin American History in cooperation with The Americas established the Tibesar Prize in December 1990. It carries a stipend of $500.

A Tibesar Prize Committee, annually named by the president of the Conference on Latin American History, will designate the most distinguished article published by The Americas for the volume year, which ends in the year before the award is announced.

Hence, for the 2017 Tibesar Prize to be awarded in January of 2018, the Tibesar Prize Committee will review and judge articles in the 2016 volume year. The Secretariat will be informed of the committee’s decision no later than October 15, 2017.

The Tibesar Prize Committee is charged with selecting that article which best combines distinguished scholarship, original research and/or thought, and grace of writing style.

Note: The CLAH now requires current membership for all of its prizes.

Tibesar Prize Committee for 2017:

Chair: Charles Walker, University of California – Davis,

Brenda Elsey, Hofstra University,

Celso Castilho, Vanderbilt University,
