Congratulations to Professor Zallen who was awarded The Albert J. Beveridge Award on the history of the United States, Latin America, or Canada, from 1492 to the present for his book American Lucifers: The Dark History of Artificial Light, 1750–1865 , as part of this year’s American Historical Association awards.
The prize is awarded according to the following parameters: “The award is given for a distinguished book in English on the history of the United States, Latin America, or Canada, from 1492 to the present. Books that employ new methodological or conceptual tools or that constitute significant re-examinations of important interpretive problems will be given preference. Literary merit is also an important criterion.”
Congratulations Professor Zallen!
