I don’t think I knew about the prize. Belated congratulations! Which prize was it?

Comment by Gerald

It’s the Westerners’ International for best dissertation in western history. I also was the runner-up for the Lerner-Scott Prize for Women’s History, but I totally agree with the committee’s decision on that one. My work is more focused on gender than women and the person who won is really doing exciting research squarely within the parameters of the award’s stated purpose.
