The Warren Dean Memorial Prize

The Warren Dean Memorial Prize was established in 1995 and carries a stipend of $500. It recognizes the book or article judged to be the most significant work on the history of Brazil published in English during the year prior to the award year. Publications by scholars other than historians will be considered as long as the work has substantial historical content. Comparative works (e. g. on Brazil and another country) will be eligible as long as they include a substantial amount of material on Brazil.

For a book or article to be considered, each of the three committee members must receive a copy by June 1, 2024, either from the publisher or from another source.

Items published in 2023 will be considered for the award year 2024 (to be awarded at the meeting in January 2025).

In exceptional cases, the award committee may decide on co-winners. The co-winners will split the prize. In such cases, there would not be an honorable mention.

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