Marc Raeff Book Prize for Outstanding Work on Imperial Russia
Nominations due by 30 May 2011

The Eighteenth-Century Russian Studies Association (ECRSA) is now accepting submissions for the first annual Marc Raeff Book Prize. The award is sponsored by the ECRSA and named in honor of Marc Raeff (1923-2008), historian, teacher, and dix-huitièmiste par excellence. The Raeff Prize will be awarded annually for a publication that is of exceptional merit and lasting significance for understanding Imperial Russia, particularly during the long eighteenth-century. The submitted work must bear a copyright date of either one or two years preceding the award year (e.g. for the 2011 competition the published copyright dates are 2009 and 2010). It can be published in any language read by members of the ECRSA Prize Selection Committee (including Russian) and in any format (analog or digital). Scholarly merit, originality, and felicity of style will be the main criteria for selection. Submissions from scholars who are less than five (5) years from receiving their doctoral degree are particularly encouraged. The recipient of the award will be recognized with a cash prize, which will be presented in November 2011, during the ASEEES annual convention. See ECRSA Events for full details.
