Marc Raeff Prize

Past Recipients of the Raeff Book Prize

The 2021 Marc Raeff Book Prize

The Eighteenth-Century Russian Studies Association, an affiliate organization of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES), is now accepting submissions for the 2021 annual Marc Raeff Book Prize.   We encourage both presses and individual scholars to submit nominations to the members of the prize committee (listed below).

The Raeff Book Prize is awarded for a publication that is of exceptional merit and lasting significance for understanding Imperial Russia during the long 18th century.  The recipient of the award will be recognized with a cash prize, which will be presented in November 2021 during the ASEEES annual convention in New Orleans.  The award is sponsored by the ECRSA and named in honor of Marc Raeff (1923-2008), historian, teacher, and dix-huitièmiste par excellence.

Please address all questions about the prize to Gregory Afinogenov (Committee Chair) at

Submissions should be made (see Nominating Instructions below) by June 15, 2021.
