Labrecque-Lee Book Prize
The Labrecque-Lee Book Prize was established in 2018, and named in honour of two outstanding Canadian anthropologists. Marie-France Labrecque, Emeritus Professor at the Université Laval Department of Anthropology, where she taught for more than 30 years. Since 1982, she has (co)authored or (co)edited nine books on gender, migration and mobility in Mexico. In 2015, she was awarded the Weaver-Tremblay prize by CASCA, celebrating her contributions to Canadian anthropology. Richard Borshay Lee is Emeritus Professor at the University of Toronto Department of Anthropology. Since 1972, he has participated as (co)author or (co)editor of seven books on the hunter-gatherers of Africa and North America. In 2016, he was appointed Officer of the Order of Canada and he is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
The Labrecque-Lee Book Prize honours a single or co-authored monograph on sociocultural, archaeological, bio-cultural, ethnohistorical or linguistic work, in French or English. It is given to CASCA members who demonstrate a Canadian affiliation through either their fieldwork, institution, degree or funding. The winner is honoured at the CASCA annual meeting and receives a $500 award.
