Call for Applications – Skendi Book Prize

The Stavro Skendi Book Prize for Achievement in Albanian Studies is presented every year to the best book making a contribution to, and advancing research in, Albanian Studies. Albanian Studies is broadly defined to include original work that furthers our understanding of Albanian societies across geo-political borders, time periods, and disciplinary confines.

The Prize committee will consider single-case studies, comparative research, and any theoretical and empirical contributions pertinent to the area of Albanian Studies. Nominated books must be in English. They must have been published within three years prior to the year of the award. Books may be nominated by the author or other scholars. Only scholarly books published by an academic press will be considered for the prize.

To nominate a book please send an email to the committee members indicating that you are doing so. Please include the following documents: 1) a one paragraph summary of the work; 2) the date, place and name of the publisher; 3) a short bio of the author; and 4) the PDF version of the book. Alternatively, you may send print copies of the book to all committee members at the addresses indicated below. The nomination and supporting documents should be sent before the deadline of June 30, 2017. The committee will make the selection and notify the recipient of the award by October 15, 2017. The Award will be formally presented at the Annual Convention of the Association for Slavic, East European & Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) in Chicago, IL, in November 2017.
