Henrietta Harrison wins Kenshur Prize for best book in Eighteenth-Century Studies
Since 2007, the Center has awarded an annual book prize to an outstanding monograph of interest to scholars of the eighteenth century working in a range of disciplines. The prize is named in honor of the work of Oscar Kenshur, professor emeritus of comparative literature at Indiana University, a dix-huitièmiste par excellence, former Chicago cab driver, and one of the founding members of the Center.
We are delighted to announce this year's prize winner:
- Henrietta Harrison, The Perils of Interpreting: The Extraordinary Lives of Two Translators between Qing China and the British Empire (Princeton University Press)
This year's Kenshur Symposium will take place, via Zoom, on Friday, November 11, from 11AM-12:30PM EST. Please do plan to be with us then (Zoom link to follow soon).
