[EXTENSION OF DEADLINE. THIS BOOK PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENT WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN NOVEMBER 2015]
The Political Economy Project (PEP) is pleased to invite nominations for our 2016 Middle East Political Economy Book Prize. PEP aims to recognize and disseminate exceptional critical work on the political economy of the Middle East. While the book must have a political economy theme, we welcome nominations from across academic disciplines. Submissions will be read and judged by a committee drawn from PEP’s membership. Eligible texts must have been published in 2013, 2014 or 2015 and can be either Arabic or English language. The book must make an original contribution to critical political economy research. The author(s) of the winning book will receive a prize of US$1000 and will be invited to give a talk at a PEP affiliated University. The author(s) will also be interviewed by PEP’s affiliate Audio Journal, Status/الوضع.
The new deadline for submission is 15 May 2016. If you intend to participate, please notify us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. To be considered, you must send an electronic copy of the book to email@example.com or two hard copies of the text to the following address:
Arab Studies Institute
4087 University Drive
Commerce Building, 3rd Floor, Suite 3200
Fairfax VA 22030
One copy will be returned once the committee has reached a decision. More information can be found on our Website, www.PoliticalEconomyProject.org. Those who have already submitted their texts will also receive them, precluding one copy, once the competition is over.
