The European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) and the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC) are pleased to announce the new Turku Book Prize.
The prize is named after the city of Turku, Finland, where it was awarded for the first time at the 6th biennial ESEH Conference, 28 June– 2 July 2011.
The Turku Book Award is intended to identify and encourage innovative and well-written scholarship in the field of environmental history. The prize, worth € 3000, is awarded for the best book in environmental history published in the two years preceding each biennial conference of the ESEH.
Books may be nominated by authors, publishers, or members of the ESEH. Preference is given to books that focus at least partly on Europe and/or to authors who are affiliated with European institutions.
