The Organising Committee of the International Congress of Belarusian Studies announces a new call for nominations for the Congress Award for the best publication published in 2014-2015.
In 2016 the Congress will also give the honorary award for the best Polish-language monograph on Belarus, published in the last five years (2011-2015). This award continues the tradition to mark the best foreign researchers who study Belarus, which was initiated in 2015.
The Congress Award aims to mark the achievements of researchers in social sciences and humanities during the year, encourage the scholarly work and enhance its quality.
The Organising Committee of the International Congress of Belarusian Studies calls upon the authors and representatives of academic community to nominate significant results of scholarly work and thus to promote them and award their authors.
The Committee accepts the works, which were published in 2015. The works, which were published in 2014, but did not participate in previous competition are also accepted. General guidelines for application: text of a minimum of 20 thousand characters (academic article, monograph, or other academic form of presentation of studies). The text should be written by one author or by several authors provided that it was edited by one person.
