African Studies Review Prizes

The African Studies Review awards recognize the outstanding scholarly achievements of African studies scholars. In 2001, the African Studies Association Board of Directors established the Graduate Student Paper Prize for the best graduate student paper presented at the previous year’s Annual Meeting. In 2020, the African Studies Review expanded its prizes to include the ASR Best Africa-Based Dissertation Award and the ASR Prize for Best Africa-focused Anthology or Edited Collection sponsored by Cambridge University Press.
