The $10,000 Laura Shannon Prize in Contemporary European Studies is now accepting nominations for books published in 2017 or 2018 in the humanities. The prize is administered by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies at the University of Notre Dame, and it is awarded annually to the author of the best book in European studies that transcends a focus on any one country, state, or people to stimulate new ways of thinking about contemporary Europe as a whole. (“Contemporary” is construed broadly, and books about particular countries or regions have done well in the process so long as there are implications for the remainder of Europe.)
Nominations, which can be submitted by a simple electronic form, may be made by authors or publishers and require only two copies of each nominated work. (Copies of the book do not need to arrive by the deadline so long as the electronic form is completed.) Additional details about the prize and the entry form are available at the website: http://nanovic.nd.
