Award for a doctoral thesis in Contemporary History to honor the memory, the scientific work, and the civic and social commitment of Professor Ivano Tognarini.
Italian and foreign doctoral researchers in Contemporary History, who have defended their thesis in calendar years 2018, 2019, 2020 (within the expiration of this notice), are eligible for this prize. Their thesis must deal with one or more of the following areas: Italian and European history of fascism and antifascism, the history of World War II and the Resistance in Italy, and the history of Republican Italy. Research focusing on Tuscany is especially, but not exclusively, welcome.
Applicants who meet the criteria are asked to send an application, only in electric format, to the Istituto storico toscano della Resistenza e dell’età contemporanea (firstname.lastname@example.org), together with a short curriculum vitae and a digital copy of the doctorate thesis by 20 May 2020.

The amount of the prize is € 2,500 and it will be awarded, also on an equal footing, with a clearly justified, final decision by a board of examiners made up of qualified university-affiliated scholars of Contemporary History, designated by the Istituto Storico della Resistenza in Toscana.
