The A. H. de Oliveira Marques Prize was created by means of a generous endowment from Dr. Harold B. Johnson, of the University of Virginia, in memory of the distinguished Portuguese historian, A. H. de Oliveira Marques (1933-2007). The prize, which carries an honorarium of $250, is awarded each year for the best peer-reviewed article or book chapter on Portuguese history published during the previous year. Watch this space for the call for submissions for the 2018-2019 cycle of awards.
The 2018 winner is Fabien Montcher, “Politics, Scholarship, and the Iberian Routes of the Republic of Letters: The Late Renaissance Itinerary of Vicente Nogueira (1586–1654),” Erudition and the Republic of Letters 2 (2017) 182-225.
