edieval Association of the Pacific's Founder's Prize

As Chair of the Founder's Prize Committee and a Member of the Board of Councillors of MAP, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind those of you about the Medieval Association of the Pacific's Founder's Prize, which is open to graduate students who have presented papers at the Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America last week in Vancouver, BC, and and who are members of the Medieval Academy and Medieval Association of the Pacific (MAP) in good standing.

If you presented your work at the joint MAA/MAP meeting in 2008, please do consider submitting your paper for consideration for the prize, which includes a monetary award as well as two publication opportunities: the winner's paper is guaranteed publication in MAP's Chronica and may also be submitted for publication consideration in Commitatus. The deadline for receipt of submissions will be in May. Papers should include all notes and be in polished form. More details along with a further announcement will be forthcoming. Please spread the word!

If you were unable to attend this year's MAA meeting, please remember that those of you who present your work at next year's meeting and who are members of the MAA and MAP in good standing, may submit your completed papers for consideration in next year's prize competition (deadline shortly after the 2009 meeting).

More information about MAP may be found at the following URL:

Please write to me at (off list) with any questions. I look forward to reading your submissions.

With my best wishes,

Susan J. Dudash
