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.
Submissions are now being accepted for the annual A. H. de Oliveira Marques Prize. This year’s award will be announced at the 2019 annual meeting of the Association for Spanish and Portuguese History in Barcelona (July 10-13, 2019). Submitted articles or book chapters may be written in Portuguese, English, Castilian, Catalan, Italian, or French, but only articles on Portuguese history published within the 2018 calendar year will be considered. Authors must be active members of the ASPHS to be eligible. Authors should submit one copy of the article and a short (2-page) CV in PDF form to the prize committee via email by February 1, 2019. Please direct queries to the chair of the prize committee.
