MAKE A DONATION

The Society of Architectural Historians and Places Journal are partnering to establish the SAH/Places Prize on Race and the Built Environment, a new award intended to support the production of innovative public scholarship that reconsiders race and the history of the built environment through a contemporary lens. Through the SAH/Places Prize, SAH and Places aim to expand the contemporary discussion on race and the built environment.

The SAH/Places Prize recipient will receive a $7,500 honorarium to produce a significant work of public scholarship that will be published in Places and delivered at a public lecture presented by SAH. The Prize is intended for a senior scholar seeking to make a transition to public scholarship. Over the course of 18 months, a series of informal talks and short writing opportunities will assist the SAH/Places Prize scholar in refining their ideas for public consumption before culminating in a published article and public lecture. SAH and Places will distribute a call for applications for the SAH/Places Prize later this year. Global topics on race and the built environment will be encouraged.
