The Medieval Academy of America will award four Olivia Remie Constable Awards of $1,500 will be granted annually in memory of Remie Constable, each to an junior faculty member, adjunct, or unaffiliated scholar (broadly understood: post-doctoral, pre-tenure) for research and travel. This award is meant to reflect the high standards of Remie’s scholarship, but is not limited to her own specialty in the economic history of Arabic Spain, as suggested by her publications, but her broader interdisciplinary interests in Medieval Studies (as exemplified by her teaching, her leadership, and her service to the discipline).
The award may be used to fund travel to archives or scholarly conferences; for acquiring copies of documents; to pay for images, equipment, hardware, software, or digital access; and/or to purchase library privileges if necessary. Preference will go to scholars and teachers who have no or limited institutional support.
Applicants must be members in good standing of the Medieval Academy as of 15 January of the year in which they apply.
