Call for Nominations 2021

The annual Best Book Prize is now open for nominations.

UACES awards a prize annually for the book that has made the most substantial and original contribution to knowledge in the area of contemporary European Studies in the previous year.

The deadline for nominations is 15 February 2021.

 

Eligibility and Prize:

The book must:

  • have a publication date in 2020;
  • be written in English (or translated into English);
  • be authored by an Individual, Early-Career or Student member of UACES (the prize is open to single-, dual- or multi-authored books, but NOT edited volumes).

 

Nominations for the prize are welcome from individuals or publishers. Two hard copies of each nominated book should be sent to the UACES office by the nomination deadline, clearly identifying the books as nominations for the prize. Electronic copies will not be accepted.

Note: In the interests of equality and diversity publishers should ensure that for every book they nominate by a male author, they nominate a book by a female author as well. This requirement does not apply to submissions by authors.

 

The prize is 100 GBP and the winning author will be invited to attend our Annual Conference as our guest and to collect the prize.
