Academia Sinica Newsletter (2012/12/27) Five scholars were recently announced the first recipients of the Academia Sinica Scholarly Monograph Award in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The five winning monographs cover research in art, literature, history and anthropology.
Academia Sinica has established the Scholarly Monograph Award in the Humanities and Social Sciences to encourage scholars to publish monographs, conduct in-depth research on academic topics, and make important contributions to scholarship. The award, which will be presented annually, is open to humanities and social sciences scholars who hold full-time positions at domestic academic research institutions, universities and colleges. To be eligible, the scholarly monographs must be first editions that have been published within the last three years.
The award is being presented for the first time this year. A total of 78 applications were received from a wide range of fields such as literature, history, anthropology, law, sociology and economics from scholars hoping to receive the first award in 2012. All submissions underwent a fair review procedure of the highest standard, which involved many renowned international and domestic scholars.
