Middle Eastern Studies
The Elie and Sylvia Kedourie Prize for Outstanding Article
About the prize
Founded in 2018, the prize is named for Elie Kedourie (1926–1992) founder and Editor-in-Chief of Middle Eastern Studies until his death in 1992, and Sylvia Kedourie (1925–2016) who took on the editorship of the journal from 1992 until her death in 2016. Elie and Sylvia made substantial contributions to the study of the Middle East, both as editors of the journal and as researchers and authors, and we are honoured to establish this award in recognition of their legacy. We're very grateful to the panel of judges involved in the selection of the prize.
