The History of Economics Society welcomes nominations for The Craufurd Goodwin Best Article in the History of Economics Prize. In addition to the honor, the winner will receive a $500 award plus travel expenses of up to $1000 to attend the Society’s annual conference (June 2020 in Utrecht, The Netherlands).

Craufurd Goodwin, who passed away in 2017, was a founding member, past President and distinguished fellow of the History of Economics Society. His long and outstanding editorship of History of Political Economy helped shape the professional community of historians of economics.

Any article in the history of economics published in English during 2019 is eligible for the award.

In such cases, relevant articles that are in ‘proof’ form, with accompanying evidence of the journal and year of publication, may be accepted at the discretion of the Chair of the committee. Nomination of an article by its author is welcome.

Besides the nominated articles, the Committee will consider all articles published in the Society’s journal, Journal for the History of Economic Thought.

The members of the Selection Committee this year are Hsiang-Ke Chao (National Tsing Hua University), Andrej Svorencik (University of Mannheim), and Ana Maria Bianchi (chair, University of Sao Paulo).
