The Center for Austrian Studies will award a Center for Austrian Studies Book Prize and a Dissertation Prize in 2016, thanks to a generous donation from David and Rosemary Good.
To be eligible for the 2016 CAS prize competitions, a book must have been published (or a dissertation defended) between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015. Authors must be citizens or legal residents (holders of “green cards”) of the United States or Canada. Eligible works may be from any discipline in the humanities, social sciences, or fine arts. The subject matter may deal with contemporary Austria, contemporary Austria’s relationship with Central Europe and the European Union, or the history, society, and culture of Austria and the lands of Central and Eastern Europe with a common Habsburg heritage. The language must be English.
The purpose of the biennial CAS Book and Dissertation prize is to encourage North American doctoral candidates and scholars in the full range of academic disciplines to do research in the field of Austrian and Habsburg studies. Multi-authored studies or multi-author collections of essays are not eligible for this competition.
Each prize carries a cash award of $1,500.
