Susanne M. Glasscock Humanities Book Prize for Interdisciplinary Scholarship

The Glasscock Book Prize, first awarded in 1999, originated by the Texas A&M Center for Humanities Research, was permanently endowed in December 2000 by Melbern G. Glasscock ’59 and his wife Susanne M. Glasscock, for whom the prize is now named.

Due to the transition of Glasscock Directorship between the 2016-17 and 2018-19 Academic Years, the Nineteenth Annual Susanne M. Glasscock Humanities Book Prize for Interdisciplinary Scholarship was postponed. We appreciate your understanding of how this affected the Prize as well as your patience as we re-open the program’s Nineteenth award. We are happy to begin accepting submissions.

Applications for the 19th Annual Book Prize are due by Friday, June 15, 2018.

Submissions in the form of ‘crossover’ humanities books, which are informed by research and expertise yet appeal to a wider than academic audience, are encouraged.
