The Charles J. Goodwin Award of Merit
The Charles J. Goodwin Award of Merit, named in honor of a long-time member and generous benefactor of the American Philological Association, is the only honor for scholarly achievement given by the Association. Click here for a list of previous recipients. The award is presented at the Annual Meeting for an outstanding contribution to classical scholarship published by a member of the Association during the three years before the current calendar year, i.e., in this case, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Candidates to be considered must have been continuous APA members for the three previous years (since 2010). The APA office will verify the membership of authors.
The works chosen to receive the award may be books, monographs, or articles, provided that they have not appeared in substantially the same form in earlier publications. They are selected by the Committee on the C. J. Goodwin Award of Merit, which consists of three elected members. Over the last year the APA Board of Directors has reviewed the Association’s award program with reference to both other awards for scholarship made in classics and the awards programs of other learned societies in the humanities. As a result of this review, the Board has mandated the Committee to make three awards each year. For this reason, the Committee particularly appreciates nominations across all areas of classics:
Letters of nomination, which may be submitted by the author, are due by May 17, 2013, and should be sent to the APA Office, 220 S. 40th Street, Suite 201E, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104-3512. Publishers wishing books to be considered by the Committee should send three copies to the same address by the deadline of June 3, 2013.
