Given since 1997, the Hamilton is one of the highest honors of literary achievement given to published authors at the University of Texas at Austin.

These awards are named in honor of Professor Robert W. Hamilton, the Minerva House Drysdale Regents Chair Emeritus at The University of Texas School of Law. Professor Hamilton is the former chairperson of the University Co-op’s Board of Directors. The Hamilton Book Author Awards program is underwritten by The University Co-operative Society.

Published works including scholarly monographs, creative works (e.g., novels and anthologies of poetry), exhibition catalogues, textbooks, and edited collections, published during the preceding calendar year may be nominated.

The book posters of all of the nominees will be on display in PCL 2.500 through October 7, 2013.
