The $10,000 Laura Shannon Prize in Contemporary European Studies seeks 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. We welcome nominations for books published in 2011 and 2012 for the humanities cycle (philosophy, theology, cultural studies, modern languages and literatures, and the arts) by Friday, January 25, 2013. Nominations, which can be submitted electronically, may be made by authors or publishers and require only two copies of each nominated work. There is no entry fee. Publishers may submit up to three titles per imprint. Additional details about the prize and the entry form are available at the website: http://nanovic.nd.edu/shannon-prize/. Please know that 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. If you have any questions, please contact Monica Caro firstname.lastname@example.org or 574-631-3547.
