Congratulations to Natalie Rothman!

She has just been awarded the TWO prizes from the American Historical Association: the Adams Book Prize and the Marraro Book Prize, both for her book Brokering Empire: Trans-Imperial Subjects between Venice and Istanbul.

Here is some information on the two prizes:

 

The Adams Prize...

"The American Historical Association offers the Herbert Baxter Adams Prize annually for a distinguished book by an American author in the field of European history. The prize was established in memory of the first secretary of the Association, Herbert Adams of Johns Hopkins University, who was also one of the Association's founders. Together with the Leo Gershoy Award, the Adams Prize is the most important distinction bestowed by the profession in the field of European history and thus has considerable prestige. This year books on European history from the ancient period through 1815 will be eligible for the competition.... Since the prize is designed especially to encourage scholars who have not yet obtained an established reputation, the entry must be the author's first substantial book"

 

And the Marraro Prize...

"The late Howard R. Marraro made bequests to the American Historical Association, the American Catholic Historical Association, and the Society for Italian Historical Studies for the purpose of establishing by each society a Helen and Howard R. Marraro Prize in Italian history. Each association has appointed a member to a joint selection committee, and each has opened its competition for its 2012 prize.

 

Each award will be given for the book or article deemed best by the committee and published between May 1, 2011, and April 30, 2012, which treats Italian history in any epoch, Italian cultural history, or Italian-American relations. Entries must first have been published in English by a historian whose usual residence is North America."

 

This is a wonderful and well-deserved honour!
