In the spring of 2018, the Johanna W.A. Naber Prize will be awarded for the sixteenth time for the best graduate thesis on Women’s History/Gender History. This can take the form of either a Master’s-level thesis, a doctoral dissertation or a licentiate thesis.

Atria and the Dutch Association for Women’s History (VVG) are offering this prize so as to promote research into the field of Women’s History/Gender History. It will be presented in April 2018 during the Members’ Meeting of the Dutch Association for Women’s History.

Is your Women’s History and/or Gender History thesis worth €500?

Have you written a thesis on this area? If so, Atria and the VVG recommend that you enter the competition. It could earn you an award of € 500 and, of course, the honour!
