Book Prize

The Donna Coates Book Prize (named after a leading scholar of Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies) is awarded annually to a monograph published by an Early Career Researcher (someone who is within eight years of being awarded their Ph.D. or six years from their first academic appointment) and/or someone who has published their first book, that looks at least two countries of the focus of the network, i.e. Australia and Canada or Canada and Aotearoa New Zealand etc., and is published in the year in which the prize is promoted, so for this year’s prize, 2021. The prize is open to all disciplines. Unlike many existing book prizes, submissions are not confined to permanent residents or citizens of the three countries. The prize is open to anyone in the world 🙂

An international adjudication committee will decide which book the prize will be awarded to. Winners of the prize will receive GBP150, have their book featured on the ACNZSN website, included in the ACNZSN fortnightly newsletter, and promoted on social media, specifically Facebook and Twitter.
