Susan M. Socolow and Lyman L. Johnson Prize

The Susan M. Socolow and Lyman L. Johnson Chile-Río de la Plata book prize was established in 2018. It carries a stipend of $500. The prize is awarded biennially to the book judged to make the most significant contribution to the history of the following countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Books appearing in the two calendar years just preceding may be considered for a given year’s award. Hence, items published in 2022 and 2023 will be considered for the award year 2024 (awarded at the meeting in January 2025).

The Socolow-Johnson Committee will consider only those items nominated by CLAH members or by publishers. Publishers must provide copies of items nominated to all committee members. Members of the prize committee may include any items they feel appropriate in the list of works considered.

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

Next nomination deadline June 1, 2024 (for books published in 2022 and 2023)

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