The Waterloo Centre for German Studies (WCGS) is pleased to announce the shortlist for its annual Book Prize.
Established in 2017, the WCGS Book Prize recognizes first-time authors whose scholarly work contributes substantially to our understanding of any aspect of German-speaking society. The prize foregrounds good writing, scholarly relevance, originality, and the ability to reach audiences beyond universities.
The quality of all the books nominated for the prize made the job of the jury especially difficult this year. Six books have been selected for the shortlist, and they are but a small sample of the breadth of research in German studies, representing diverse disciplines such as literary studies, history, visual studies, and media studies.
You can find this year’s shortlist, celebrating books published in 2022, with links to book descriptions and interviews with the authors on our website: https://uwaterloo.ca/centre-for-german-studies/wcgs-book-prize.
