David Barclay Book Prize


The David Barclay Book Prize was inaugurated in 2020 to mark the occasion of Dr. David E. Barclay’s retirement from the German Studies Association’s Executive Directorship, a position he held for fifteen years. This annual prize recognizes both Dr. Barclay’s service to the Association and his scholarship as Professor Emeritus of History at Kalamazoo College. The Barclay Book Prize is awarded to the best monograph (in English or German and published in the previous year) on the social, cultural, economic, political, or labor history of nineteenth-century and twentieth-century Germany or central Europe.
