About the Prize

About the Susanne M. Glasscock Humanities Book Prize for Interdisciplinary Scholarship

The Glasscock Book Prize, first awarded in 1999, originated by the Texas A&M Center for Humanities Research, was permanently endowed in December 2000 by Melbern G. Glasscock ’59 and his wife Susanne M. Glasscock, for whom the prize is now named.

 

The Book Prize selection procedures have changed: We no longer solicit submissions from publishers. Instead, finalists for the Prize are selected by a nominations committee.


Upcoming Prize:

The 20th Annual Susanne M. Glasscock Humanities Book Prize for Interdisciplinary Scholarship has been awarded to Louis Hyman for his book, Temp: How American Work, American Business, and the American Dream Became Temporary, published by Penguin Random House in 2018.
