CESS Book Awards
Exeter, UK

Scholarship / Financial aid: a monetary prize of $500 and a certificate of award

Date: 2012

Deadline: April 30, 2012

Open to: scholars in the History & Humanities and in the Social Sciences

Announcement follows

In 2007, CESS established two CESS Book Awards, one for work in the History & Humanities and another for work in the Social Sciences. The competitions for these awards are held in alternate years, beginning in 2007 with the CESS History & Humanities Book Award.

Each year the CESS Book Award and a monetary prize of $500 is presented to the author of the research monograph, published in the preceding two years, that represents the most important contribution to Central Eurasian studies, or that holds the greatest potential for furthering scholarship on the Central Eurasian region. An interdisciplinary panel of three scholars of Central Eurasia, appointed annually by the CESS Executive Board, will consider scholarly merit, argumentative scope, and felicity of style in their deliberations.

Rules for the competition are as follows:
•Books must be scholarly monographs based on original research and published in English during the two calendar years preceding the award (as measured by the printed copyright date). For example, books with a publication date of 2010 or 2011 may be considered for the 2012 Social Sciences competition.
•Books may be submitted for one competition only, and no book may be considered more than once.
•Scholarly monographs translated into English from other languages are eligible for consideration.
•Edited volumes, new editions of previously published books, bibliographies, dictionaries and textbooks are not eligible.
•Nominations may be made by either the publisher or the author. In order for a book to be considered, three copies must be received by April 30 of the year of the competition.
•Authors need not be members of CESS to be nominated, but must become members by the nomination deadline (June 30) to be considered.
•The winning author will receive the monetary prize and a certificate of award at an awards ceremony held at the annual CESS conference. The results will also be announced in the Central Eurasian Studies Review.

For the 2012 CESS Social Sciences Book Award competition, please ensure that three copies of the nominated book reach the CESS Book Award Committee at the following address by April 30, 2012:
