The Council for European Studies (CES) seeks nominations for its inaugural European Studies First Article Prize. The First Article Prize honors the writers of the best first articles on European studies published within a two-year period and will be awarded to two scholars, one working in the humanities and one in the social sciences.
A multi-disciplinary First Article Prize Committee appointed by the Council’s Executive Committee will choose the winner. Each prize winner will receive $500 and public recognition in Council publications and on our website.
The submission period is open now and ends February 15, 2012. Nominees will be notified of the Committee’s decision no later than May 15, 2012.
Each nominated article must meet the following criteria:
– Be the first article published by the nominee in the field of European Studies in a peer-reviewed journal;
– Be published between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2011;
– Be the work of one author only or be an article on which the nominee is the first author;
– Be authored by a member of the Council for European Studies or a faculty/student of an institution that is a member.
Nominations may be submitted by the publisher, editor, author, or an admiring colleague, and must be accompanied by a nomination form and digital copy of the article. Paper submissions will not be accepted.
