The prize is funded by the North American office of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and carries an award of $500.

The director of the DAAD will present the award during the banquet at the GSA Annual Conference on October 8, 2010, in Oakland, California (Oakland Convention Center).

Höhn's most recent publications include Over There: Living with the U.S. Military Empire (co-edited/authored with Seungsook Moon, Duke University Press, 2010) and “A Breath of Freedom”: The Civil Rights Struggle, African American GIs, and Germany (co-authored with Martin Klimke, Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming October 2010, www.breathoffreedom.org).
