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. Nominated books are informed by research and expertise, yet are concerned with and appeal to a wider than academic audience. In celebration of the Prize, we hold annual events including a book brunch, the Prize-winning author's lecture, and an associated community event.

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 21st Annual Susanne M. Glasscock Humanities Book Prize for Interdisciplinary Scholarship has been awarded to Susan Neiman for her book Learning From the Germans: Race and the Memory of Evilpublished by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 2019.
