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.
The Co-Editors would like to thank the judging panel, drawn from the Editorial Board and led by Courtney Freer (LSE), for their assistance in selecting the winning article:
- Ali Ansari, University of St Andrews
- Benjamin Fortna, University of Arizona
- Clive Jones, Durham University
We would also like to thank all those readers who sent us suggestions to put forward for consideration for the prize.
The next prize, awarded to an outstanding article published in the 2020 Volume of Middle Eastern Studies, will be awarded in June 2021. Nomination from readers are welcome at any time of the year.
