Philippa Maddern ECR Publication Prize

Philippa Maddern (1952–2014) was Professor of History at The University of Western Australia, Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, an ANZAMEMS stalwart, and an active member of the Association from its inception. Philippa contributed enormously to the development of medieval and early modern studies, both in Australia and globally. She gave great service as an office bearer of ANZAMEMS, serving in a range of capacities on the committee including many years as its Treasurer. Philippa was a great champion of researchers embarking on academic careers and ANZAMEMS is proud to establish a Publication Prize for Early Career Researchers in her honour.

The Philippa Maddern ECR Publication Prize is awarded to an Early Career Researcher (ECR) for the best article-length scholarly work in any discipline/topic falling within the scope of medieval and early modern studies, published within the previous two years.

The Prize will be offered biennially, with the submission and adjudication process timed so that the announcement of the winner can be made at an ANZAMEMS Biennial International Conference. The Prize will be offered in 2016, with the winner announced at the ANZAMEMS conference to be held in Wellington, NZ, in February 2017.

**Entry for the 2016 Prize is now closed**

Patricia Crawford Postgraduate Publication Prize

Patricia Crawford (1941–2009) was Professor Emerita of History at The University of Western Australia. A pioneering feminist historian, she is remembered as a leading scholar of early modern England whose work brought new depth to the study of women’s lives and thereby transformed understanding of the period. Trish was internationally recognised and served The University of Western Australia, her discipline, and ANZAMEMS with distinction. An active member of ANZAMEMS and the Parergon Editorial Committee, Trish was a scholar passionate about collaboration, and a mentor of extraordinary generosity, and ANZAMEMS is delighted to establish a Publication Prize for postgraduate students in her honour.

The Patricia Crawford Postgraduate Publication Prize will be awarded to a postgraduate student for the best article-length scholarly work in any discipline/topic falling within the scope of medieval and early modern studies, published within the previous two years.

The Prize will be offered biennially, with the submission and adjudication process timed so that the announcement of the winner can be made at an ANZAMEMS Biennial International Conference. The Prize will be offered in 2016, with the winner announced at the ANZAMEMS conference to be held in Wellington, NZ, in February 2017.
