Call for Nominations - ENMISA Distinguished Book Award

The Ethnicity, Nationalism and Migration Section of the International Studies Association (ENMISA) invites nominations for the section's annual Distinguished Book Award.

The award committee - consisting of William Ayres (Wright State University),  David Messenger (University of Wyoming), and Renat Shaykhutdinov (Florida Atlantic University) - welcomes books from any discipline that advance our understanding of ethnicity, nationalism and / or migration. It particularly encourages nominations of  books that engage multiple areas of the section's analytical interests.

Books must have been published in 2015 or 2016. At least one author must be a current member of ISA. Nominations and books need to be sent to all members of the committee by August 15th, 2016, and all nominations must be accompanied by a short cover letter (1-page at most) that discusses why the book is nominated for the award.  Self nominations are welcome.
