Caribbean Studies Book Prize

Caribbean Studies Association Announces the 2012 Gordon K. and Sybil Lewis Prize

Deadline for Application: November 15, 2011

To honor the memory of distinguished Caribbeanist Gordon K. Lewis, the Caribbean Studies Association has established a yearly award to be given for the best book about the Caribbean published over the previous three-year period (2009-2011) in Spanish, English, French or Dutch. The nominated book should approach the chosen subject or aspect of Caribbean life conditions and situations from an interdisciplinary perspective, and should clearly be shown to have regional impact.

Monographs in all disciplines and fields of Caribbean scholarship will be considered. Preference will be given to books written by one or more authors as opposed to edited volumes.
