SLAS Harold Blakemore Prize

This prize, named for Harold Blakemore (1930-1991), commemorates a scholar described as ‘the British standard-bearer of Latin American studies for a quarter of a century’ (in an obituary by David Fox), who played a key role in the foundation of SLAS in 1964 and throughout its early period. Since 1991, the prize has been awarded to the best essay submitted each year by a postgraduate student in Latin American Studies. Its monetary value is £600, and the winner is invited by the Editors to submit his or her essay to the Bulletin of Latin American Studies (subject to the usual Editorial procedures).

The single annual deadline for submissions for the Harold Blakemore Prize is 28 February each year.
