Dear Colleagues, we are proud to announce the establishment of the Africa-Asia Book Prize, and we are looking forward to receiving publications in this field of study.
The A-Asia / ICAS Africa-Asia Book Prize (in short the Africa-Asia Book Prize) aims to create by way of a global competition both an international focus for publications on Africa-Asia while at the same time increasing their visibility worldwide. The Africa-Asia Book Prize
was established by the secretariats of International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS)and the Association for Asian Studies in Africa (A-Asia).
Guidelines & regulations
Academic publications in the Humanities and Social Sciences which are eligible should either be written by an African scholar on an Asian topic or by any other author on Africa-Asia (transnational) linkages.
Authors from Africa and Asia are strongly encouraged to have their publishers submit their books.
All academic books published in English, French and Portuguese between 2009 and 1 July 2014 on topics pertaining to Africa-Asia are eligible. The winner of the Prize will be invited to ICAS 9 in Adelaide (5-9 July 2015) to present his or her book during the ICAS Book Presentation carrousel.
