As you know, the History of Science Society has awarded the Margaret W. Rossiter History of Women in Science Prize annually (since 1987) to the author of an outstanding contribution to the history of women in science published in the past four years. The prize alternates between books and scholarly articles. Last year, the prize was awarded to Yi-Li Wu for Reproducing Women: Medicine, Metaphor, and Childbirth in Later Imperial China (University of California Press, 2010).
This year HSS is seeking nominations for an article published in the four years prior to this calendar year (2008 to 2011). Included in the topic "women in science" are discussions of women's activities in science, analyses of past scientific practices that deal explicitly with gender, and investigations regarding women as viewed by scientists. Papers may relate to medicine, technology, and the social sciences as well as the natural sciences.
HSS relies upon thoughtful nominations to bring outstanding work to the attention of the prize committees. This means us! Please use this online form to submit nominations: http://www.hssweb.org/nominations/.
The nomination deadline is April 1, 2012.
