The Philippine Studies Group of the Association for Asian Studies
(AAS) is pleased to announce the request for nominations for the
Grant Goodman Prize, which is awarded every two years for outstanding
contributions to Philippine historical studies. The Prize was
established in 1990 with a generous gift from Grant Goodman,
Professor Emeritus, Department of History, University of Kansas, and
was first awarded in 1994 to Father John Schumacher, SJ. Previous
recipients have included prominent scholars such as Alfred W. McCoy,
Resil Mojares, and Vicente Rafael, among others.

The Prize is intended to recognize scholars who have made a
“substantial contribution” to the field of Philippine history or
historical studies. There are no citizenship or residency
requirements; it is open to all scholars, across the academic
disciplines, providing that their work is innovative and incorporates
a strong historical perspective. Recipients are chosen by a committee
elected by the Philippine Studies Group.

The committee now seeks nominations for the Prize, which we hope will
be awarded at the 2011 AAS meeting in Hawai’i. Letters of nomination
should include the nominee’s name, institutional affiliation,
curriculum vitae, and a brief statement about why he or she merits
the award. Nominations should be sent electronically by 15 February
2011 to: Susan Russell (, Chair, Selection
Committee, with copies to Vina Lanzona ( and
Norman Owen ( Re-nomination of previous nominees is
encouraged, but should be accompanied by an up-to-date curriculum vitae.
