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.]

  1. Hello–

    When and where were the awards announced at the AHA? That sort of gathering would have interested me…

    • Unfortunately, I don't know. They are usually informal gatherings made up of bloggers and, of course, Ralph Luker who started it all.

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
