Archivaria's Dodds Prize open for nominations: Deadline June 30, 2020

4 Mar 2020 2:46 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Dodds Prize recognizes superior research and writing on an archival topic by a student enrolled in a Master's level archival studies program at a Canadian university.

To be considered, a faculty member or instructor associated with the program must submit the student paper to verify that it was written within the context of an archival studies program between May 1, 2019 and April 30, 2020. Submissions must be received by June 30, 2020. Papers written in French or English are eligible.

The submission form and procedures are available at

Submissions will be judged by the Dodds Prize Adjudication Committee on the quality of their scholarship, creativity and clarity of writing. The Adjudication Committee comprises the General Editor of Archivaria (or delegate), the ACA Board Liaison to Archivaria (or delegate) and two additional ACA members chosen annually by the General Editor. Delegates will be used in cases where a conflict of interest exists.

Winners will receive a certificate, a cash prize, publication of the winning entry in Archivaria and a listing on the ACA website.

I encourage archival educators to make your students aware of this award, and to keep the award in mind while you're grading papers. Papers must be between 5,000 and 8,000 words and written on an archival topic.

For more information or if you have any questions, please contact me.

All the best,

Shyla Seller

Managing Editor, Archivaria
