The Tyee and the Simon Fraser University History department have established an award to honour historian Michael Fellman, who regularly contributed to the B.C.-based online publication.

Fellman died last year. He was a noted historian, political commentator and author who taught for almost 40 years at SFU.

The Michael Fellman Award will acknowledge a piece of publicly accessible writing that demonstrates bold thought, clear analysis and rests on well-researched historical understanding. The winner will receive $1,000 and will be selected by a trio of judges: a Tyee editor, an SFU History department member and Michael Fellman's partner Santa Aloi. The winning piece will also be published on The Tyee in November.

Deadline: Nov. 1, 2013.
