The Awards Ceremony for the 10th Scholarly Monograph Award in the Humanities and Social Sciences

Date: 2021-12-09

The Awards Ceremony for the 10th Scholarly Monograph Award in the Humanities and Social Sciences was held on December 9 on the first floor of the Tsai Yuan-Pei Memorial Hall (Faculty Club), Academia Sinica. This year, five books were selected for the award: two in Mandarin and three in English, covering topics such as history, art, and English literature. It was our great pleasure to recognize this year’s award winners, whose thought-provoking books explored a vast range of ideas and challenged preexisting theoretical frameworks.

The Scholarly Monograph Award was established to encourage monograph publication in the humanities and social sciences that allows scholars to share their findings with the public and enrich society. Honoring the finest examples of scholarship, the Award recognizes books that demonstrate outstanding research and ground-breaking insights. Through the years, award-winning books have received high recognition from scholars in Taiwan and abroad.

During the ceremony, each awardee was given a medal and a prize of NT$600,000, with all five awardees making brief presentations about their prize-winning books. The ceremony was hosted by Academia Sinica Vice-President Chin-shing Huang.
