Marc Raeff Prize 2017

The 2017 Marc Raeff Book Prize

The Eighteenth-Century Russian Studies Association, an affiliate organization of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES), is now accepting submissions for the seventh annual Marc Raeff Book Prize.   We encourage your press to submit relevant entries to the members of the prize committee (listed below).

The Raeff Book Prize is awarded annually for a publication that is of exceptional merit and lasting significance for understanding Imperial Russia, particularly during the long eighteenth-century.  The recipient of the award will be recognized with a cash prize, which will be presented in November 2017, during the ASEEES annual convention.  The award is sponsored by the ECRSA and named in honor of Marc Raeff (1923-2008), historian, teacher, and dix-huitièmiste par excellence.

Please address all questions about the prize to Kelly O'Neill (President 2017, ECRSA) at

Submissions should be made (see Nominating Instructions below, with addresses) by June 1, 2017.
