Choosing a subject area: guidance for nominees

The Trust invites nominees and nominators to interpret the above subject areas broadly and to select that which best reflects their field of study or is closest to the nominee’s area of research. For example, History could be interpreted to include Ancient History, Medieval, Early Modern and Modern History, or History of Art. Nominations will be considered irrespective of a nominee’s departmental affiliation.

The nominee’s contribution to the chosen subject area should be made explicit.

Please note that an individual may only be nominated for a Prize in one of the above 18 areas during the period 2017–19.
