Dissertation Prize

The Center for Digital Humanities is pleased to announce that we are accepting nominations for the Digital Humanities Dissertation Prize which recognizes exceptional doctoral work with a digital humanities component by recipients of Princeton PhDs. Applicants may self-nominate, as long as they secure a letter of recommendation from a Princeton faculty member.

Nominees for the 2021 prize must have defended their dissertation (FPO) between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021. The deadline for nominations will be June 1, 2022 (11:59 pm). The prize carries an award of $2,000.

For consideration, please submit the following materials to cdh-info@princeton.edu :

  1. Dissertation abstract
  2. Completed dissertation
  3. Letter of recommendation from a faculty member (typically a dissertation adviser)

Please send the first two items as PDF attachments. Letters of recommendation should be sent separately to the same address (cdh-info@princeton.edu) and may be attached as PDFs or written in the text of an email. All materials, including letters of recommendation, must be received by the deadline. Please use the subject line “Submission for CDH Dissertation Prize.”
