The European Studies Undergraduate Project Prize is designed to encourage interest and collaborative, interdisciplinary work in the field of European Studies by rewarding talented undergraduates who have conducted original research in the field. The prize is awarded to the best research paper written in English on any subject in European Studies as part of an undergraduate university degree program. Projects that incorporate another discipline and a second contributor are strongly encouraged.
Two prizes will be awarded in 2019. A multidisciplinary selection committee appointed by CES’ Executive Committee will choose the winners. Each winner (or winning collaborative team) will receive a check for $500, along with public recognition in CES’ European Studies Newsletter, and on CES’ social media sites. As well, the winning project will be featured on EuropeNow Campus, the educational corner of EuropeNow, CES’ online journal of research, art, and politics relating to Europe that reaches over 100,000 readers globally. In addition, prize winners who are interested in attending the CES conference may request one conference registration fee waiver for any conference in the three years following their award.
Nominations will be accepted from October 1, 2018 until March 1, 2019. The winners will be announced in June of 2019.

The Chicago Journal of History, UChicago’s undergraduate history publication, is calling for papers for its Spring 2019 issue! (Then again, Fall 2018 is being printed in a few weeks, so take “Spring” with a grain of salt.) While we of course welcome papers written specifically for the journal, we recognize that most students don’t have that sort of time and welcome class papers, theses—any historical work you might be proud of. Papers do not have to be “history papers” specifically, though they must deal with a subject that is historical in nature. I’ve listed some guidelines below, though a more extensive list may be seen on our Facebook page:
1. Submit papers by Feb. 11, 2019 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The document should be readily identifiable—we recommend titling it “[Last name][First initial]_CJH”—and the subject line should contain your first name and the paper’s actual title.
2. Submissions should be between 15 and 40 pages long. We’ll read shorter papers, but it’s an uphill battle; longer papers will only be read at the editors’ discretion.
3. Format your citations according to the Chicago Manual of Style. If you’re not sure whether you have the proper citations, check the Quick Guide or, if you have access through your library, the full online or print versions of the CMoS.
