The brand new WiGS Book Prize was announced at the annual conference in Cambridge, Selwyn College, this November. The prize is explicitly aimed at Early Career Researchers (including doctoral students just finishing their degree) who are preparing their first book. This can be your doctoral thesis, or a volume of translation, or indeed the book of your research since the doctorate. As long as you have not published a monograph yet, you are eligible to submit a proposal. From the Further Particulars:
“Women in German Studies are delighted to announce their new prize for first books, sponsored by Peter Lang. Members of WiGS who are preparing their first book for publication are encouraged to submit proposals. All topics within German Studies are welcome. The winning book will be selected by the WiGS committee and the commissioning editor for German Studies at Peter Lang Oxford will present the prize at the annual WiGS conference. The winner of the prize in each year will receive £150.”
