Gep-ed colleagues,
If you have a book to nominate for the Sprout Award, PLEASE CONFIRM WITH YOUR 
PUBLISHER that they have nominated your book by sending a copy to all members 
of the Sprout committee (see below).  The deadline for submissions 

From: Gep-Ed <> on behalf of Stacy VanDeveer 

ATTENTION GEP-ed List Authors!


Today I write to encourage you to submit books you have published or released 
during 2017-2018 for consideration for the Harold & Margaret Sprout Award, 
which was established in 1972 and named in honor of two pioneers in the study 
of international environmental problems. The Award is given each year for the 
best book in Environmental Studies by the International Studies Association 
(ISA), the world’s largest and most prominent scholarly organization dedicated 
to international studies. The Award is sponsored by the Environmental Studies 
Section, and is given to the best book in the field, one that makes a 
contribution to theory and interdisciplinarity, shows rigor and coherence in 
research and writing, and offers accessibility and practical relevance.

Nominated books should address some aspect of one or more environmental, 
pollution or resource issues from a broadly international or transnational 
perspective, including works in (for example) global, interstate, 
transboundary, North-South, foreign policy, comparative or area studies. 
Environmental subjects of books can include (for example) environmental law, 
diplomacy, transnational activism, natural resource use, global change, 
sustainable development, biodiversity, transboundary pollution control, and the 
like. For a list of previous winners of the award, please visit the website of 
ISA’s Environmental Studies Section at

Nominated works must be published during 2017 or 2018. Books with a 2019 
copyright date are welcome provided that they are released by the end of 2018 
and review copies can be sent by the nomination deadline. Each publisher may 
nominate more than one book, and books nominated last year can be re-nominated. 
The committee members will begin reading the books as soon as they arrive. The 
Committee must complete its review and reach a decision by Fall 2018; the 2019 
award will be presented at the annual meeting of the ISA in Toronto on 27-30 
March 2019. Therefore, we need to receive notice of your nominations and 
receive copies of the nominated works by August 5, 2018. (Please note that 
committee members are located in three different countries, which will require 
appropriate shipping arrangements so that books reach us on time.)

Should you have a book or books you would like to nominate, please send one 
copy of each book to EACH member of the Sprout Award Committee. The names and 
addresses of committee members are listed below. Please include a note or 
letter with the book(s) indicating that they are nominated for the Sprout Award 
so that we can distinguish them from other books we receive.

Thank you very much for your nomination(s). Please contact me if you have any 
questions about the award or the process.

HI Stacy,

I've taken care of all the wrong email addresses, maternity leaves, job 
changes, random questions, etc. Books are starting to come in (seven so far). 
I'll send a reminder in about three weeks.

Could you please take care of the announcement on gep-ed and any other relevant 
lists to remind authors to ask their publishers to submit their books?
Thanks and best,
