New Concept for the GHI’s Steiner Prize

The German Historical Institute Washington DC – in cooperation with the Franz Steiner Verlag - has concluded a conceptual revision of the Steiner Prize for German-American Studies in which the prize was renamed into Franz Steiner Prize for Transatlantic History. From now on, the prize will be rewarded to young scholars who recently completed their doctoral dissertation or Habilitationsschrift in the field of transatlantic history. The new concept is intended to meet recent research developments that define transatlantic history in a broader perspective.
