Dr Jakub Beneš has received the 2017 Barbara Jelavich Prize

Dr Jakub Beneš' book, Workers and Nationalism: Czech and German Social Democracy in Habsburg Austria, 1890-1918 has received the 2017 Barbara Jelavich Prize from the Association of Slavic, East European, & Eurasian Studies. 

Workers and Nationalism: Czech and German Social Democracy in Habsburg Austria, 1890-1918 (Oxford University Press, 2016) looks at the culture of the workers’ movement in Prague, Vienna, Brno and elsewhere and how it evolved alongside the democratization of elections and during the First World War. The book forms part of Jakub's broader interest in the history of socialism, which he is pursuing with a chapter for the new Cambridge History of the Habsburg Monarchy and a co-edited interdisciplinary volume called Socialist Imaginations.
