ENTRY TO THE 2021 JANETTE HARLEY PRIZE NOW OPEN
The British Records Association (BRA) is delighted to announce that entry to the 2021 Janette Harley Prize is now open. The prize is intended to generate interest in archives, and raise awareness of research and achievements in the world of archives.
The prizewinner in 2020 was Steven King, Professor of Economic and Social History at Nottingham Trent University, for his book Writing the Lives of the English Poor 1750s-1830s (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2019).
The closing date for entries to the 2021 Janette Harley Prize is 31 July (extended again this year by one month to take account of COVID-19). The winning entry will be announced in November. We hope to be able to present the prize in person at a BRA event, but the timing of this will naturally depend on the ongoing Covid situation.
