Canadian Political History Prizes / Prix en histoire politique canadienne
A few years ago, I helped organize and launch a Political History Group within the Canadian Historical Association. One of the group's initial objectives was to promote the recognition of excellent scholarship in Canadian political history, and so last year we launched a series of three prizes - best book, best English-language article, and best French-language article. We were short of nominations for the French-language article prize, but had numerous submissions for the other two prizes, which were won by Ivana Caccia for her book Managing the Canadian Mosaic in Wartime: Shaping Citizenship Policy, 1939-1945, published by McGill-Queen’s University Press, and Bradley Miller, for his article “‘A carnival of crime on our border’: International Law, Imperial Power, and Extradition in Canada, 1865-1883,” which appeared in the Canadian Historical Review.
I'm pleased to announce the competitions for the 2012 prizes. Details may be found at the Political History Group's website in English and French.Recommend this Post
