Marc Raeff Prize

Past Recipients of the Raeff Book Prize

The 2023 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 2023 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 the Russian Empire during the long 18th century.  The recipient of the award will be recognized with a cash prize, which will be presented in November 2023 during the ASEEES annual convention in Philadelphia.  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 Andrey Ivanov (Committee Chair) at

Submissions should be made (see Nominating Instructions below) by June 15, 2023.
