by scholars who, when applying for the prize, are either preparing
their PhD or have completed their PhD during the last five years.

The International Society of Cultural History

In research and teaching, the vitality of cultural history is
burgeoning, with a broad variety of interpretations of culture
cross-fertilising between disciplines (history, human sciences,
cultural studies, literature and media, and many more) and between
different countries. In July 2007, a conference discussing Varieties
of Cultural History was held in Aberdeen, Scotland. A large number of
its participants agreed to form an international society to promote
the further development of cultural history. The official founding
conference with the title Orientations took place in Ghent (Belgium)
at the end of August 2008. More information on the society at
