"All book prizes are important, but the Laura Shannon Prize stands out in several ways. First: the link to the Nanovic Institute connects it with one of the foremost centres for European Studies research in the Anglophone world, a research and teaching forum committed to interdisciplinary work across the humanities. Second: the Institute recruits its Laura Shannon Prize jurors from among the leading authorities in this field worldwide—the list of current and former jurors is extraordinarily impressive. And third: the Prize brings with it the lustre of the Nanovic’s relationship with the research-intense University of Notre Dame, where it serves as a coordinating hub for scholars and students working in a wide range of humanities disciplines from within and beyond the university campus. This prize enjoys high visibility across the USA and in the UK and has established itself as a major landmark in the world of humanities research and publishing."
