The Institute for South Asia Studies and the Berkeley Pakistan Initiative are delighted to announce the S. S. Pirzada Dissertation Prize for 2017-18. We invite submission of the best Ph.D. dissertation on Pakistan (or the region that is now Pakistan) in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Visual & Fine Arts, Law, and Public Health.
Comparative Ph.D. dissertations will be accepted as long as Pakistan forms at least 50% of the content and the dissertee can make a specific case for the research on Pakistan. Only Ph.D. dissertations submitted at an accredited North American or European Union-based University will be accepted. The prize comes with a $2,500 book subvention.
