SESAH’s annual Publication Awards honor outstanding scholarship about the architecture of the South or by authors who reside in the South (defined as SESAH member states). Three categories of publication are recognized: books, journal articles, and essays published in book format.
Criteria for consideration include the publication’s contribution to scholarship, as measured by the potential impact on the field through the author(s) methodological approach and analysis; breadth of research and resources; and quality of production, particularly in the illustrations and photographs selected. All entries should be well-written, and each should be an original and thorough piece of scholarship. Articles in ARRIS are automatically considered eligible, or nominated for consideration by the committee, if the subject and author criteria are met.
Publication dates for nominations must fall within two years of the award, i.e., current and previous years, to ensure entries reflect contemporary scholarship.
Actual copies of books can be sent to
