Call for Entries: 2012 Zora Kipel Book and Article Prize Competition
The North American Association for Belarusian Studies is pleased to solicit entries for the 2012 Zora Kipel prize competition for books and articles in Belarusian studies. The Zora Kipel prizes, funded jointly by the family of Zora Kipel and the North American Association for Belarusian Studies, are awarded biennially and are designed to recognize outstanding new publications in the fields of Belarusian cultural studies, literature, linguistics, history, and social sciences. As of this year, the prize categories will alternate thematically each cycle. For the 2012 book competition (prize amount: $500), we are soliciting entries only in the fields of history and social sciences, published between 2009 and 2012. For the 2012 article competition (prize: $200), we are soliciting entries only in the fields of Belarusian literature, linguistics and cultural studies published between 2009 and 2012 (please note that the thematic scope of the book and article competitions will be reversed in the next cycle in 2014, in which publications that appeared between 2009 and 2014 will be considered). We particularly encourage scholars based in North America to enter the competition (entrants need not, however, be members of NAABS). Winners will be selected by a panel of judges made up of NAABS officers and members. To enter the competition, please send a copy of your book or article to the following address by October 1, 2012:
