Muslim Lives in Eastern Europe wins 2011 William A. Douglass Prize in Europeanist Anthropology

The Society for the Anthropology of Europe, part of the American Anthropological Association, has announced that Muslim Lives in Eastern Europe: Gender, Ethnicity, and the Transformation of Islam in Postsocialist Bulgaria by Kristen Ghodsee is the winner of the 2011 William A. Douglass Prize in Europeanist Anthropology.

According to their web site, “The William A. Douglass Prize in Europeanist Anthropology honors the best book published annually in Europeanist anthropology as determined by a panel comprising SAE senior members, chaired by the Society’s President-elect.”
