Congratulations to Janet Elise Johnson, Brooklyn College, and Mara Lazda, Bronx Community College, and colleague Katalin Fábián, Lafayette University, for winning the Association of Women in Slavic Studies‘ 2022 Heldt Prize for the best book in Slavic, East European and Eurasian women’s and gender studies!
What the prize committee said about the Routledge Handbook of Gender in Central-Eastern Europe and Eurasia (Routledge, 2021):
Unparalleled in its usefulness for the fields of study indicated in the title of this prize, the Routledge Handbook of Gender in Central-Eastern Europe and Eurasia assembles a dazzling collection of high-level articles into a coherent and well-formulated whole. Excellent editing permits the enormous breadth of topics introduced here to work both individually and in concert. Readers are treated to sensitive and eye-opening discussions of differences and similarities across a region which features not only different landscapes and languages, but also widely diverse imperial histories and religious traditions. A powerhouse of research on important topics, this volume will be a tremendous resource for years to come.
