The 2009 Cliopatria Awards were announced yesterday evening as part of the annual meeting of the American Historical Association. The awards are well deserved and reflect a format that remains vibrant and creative. [Note: Keep in mind that each category is decided by an independent committee, which explains why Georgian London won two awards.]
