LAURENCE WYLIE PRIZE IN FRENCH CULTURAL STUDIES
Created in 1995 to honor the memory of Laurence Wylie, Professor of French Civilization at Harvard University, the Laurence Wylie Prize in French Cultural Studies is awarded every second year to the best book in French cultural or social studies. Since 2017, the Prize has been administered by the faculty of NYU’s Institute of French Studies.
This year, nominated books must have been published in 2020 or 2021. Eligibility:
Nominated books must be scholarly essays dealing with French society or culture concerning any historical period. France is conceived in broad geographic terms, including the Caribbean, Africa, the Maghreb, the Indian Ocean, South and Southeast Asia, etc.
Books may be written in English or French, and book authors may be of any nationality, but the author must reside in North America.
The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2022. The prize will be announced in the spring of 2022 and awarded at NYU the following fall. Presses may submit more than one book.
