Franklin Pease G.Y. Prize
The Franklin Pease Memorial Prize is given to the most outstanding essay published in CLAR over a period of two years. It was created in 2000 in memory of Peruvian historian Franklin Pease G. Y. (1939 – 1999) a founding member of the journal with many contributions to the field. A committee from the journal’s Advisory Board selects a winner and an honorable mention by looking at original and careful research, fresh perspectives, cross-disciplinary appeal, clarity of exposition, and new critical directions.
The next award will be given for articles published in CLAR in 2023 and 2024.
