CfA: Canadian Association for Ukrainian Studies Book Prize

Iryna Skubii Discussion

The Canadian Association for Ukrainian Studies invites nominations (including self-nominations) for its biennial Book Prize. Books with the copyright dates of 2020, 2021, and 2022 are eligible for this year’s competition (the prize was postponed last year due to the war).  Please see below for the full eligibility criteria. Copies of the books are to be mailed to the three members of the jury at the addresses listed below. Paper copies are preferred, but, as an exception, electronic copies will be accepted this year. Eligible entries must be postmarked by March 31, 2023.

The CAUS Book Prize is awarded biennially for the best book in Ukrainian Studies published by Canada-based scholars in English, French, or Ukrainian during the previous two years. Books by Canadian citizens living abroad may be considered in cases where the authors maintain a close connection to Canadian academia (as demonstrated by a continuous record of membership in Canadian professional associations and regular attendance at their meetings). The book prize jury consists of three members chosen by the CAUS Executive. The evaluation criteria include academic excellence, contribution to the field, and potential impact beyond academia. Edited collections, translations, bibliographies, and reference works are ineligible. The award consists of a certificate and recognition at the next AGM of the CAUS.
