The AAIS is pleased to announce that the submission window for the 2021 AAIS Book Prize competition is now open. As in recent years, up to four prizes will be awarded for the best books in Italian Studies published in 2021. Winners will be announced at the AAIS Conference in Bologna, May 29-June 1, 2022.
The Book Prize Committee will award prizes in the following categories:
When sending your entry, please indicate the category that best reflects the primary area of your publication from among those listed above. If authors submit an entry without specifying a category, they will be contacted for clarification before their book goes out to judges.
Authors may indicate if they would like their book to be considered for First Book in addition to one of the other categories, but a book can win no more than one prize. If an author enters their work into the First Book competition, they are kindly requested to provide a CV with complete list of publications.
Translations, textbooks, creative writings, and edited volumes cannot be entered into the competition.
Kindly send 5 copies of the volume (or bound photocopies if the publisher cannot spare additional copies) by January 5, 2022 to:
TCU Modern Languages - SCHAR 3200
2901 Stadium Drive
Fort Worth, TX 76129
NB: In an effort to allow ample time for Book Award Committee members to carefully read all submissions, we encourage authors or their representatives to send in their books as soon as possible.
Please contact AAIS Vice President Monica Seger with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
