Kathyn CianciaCongratulating Kathryn Ciancia who has been awarded the Center for the Humanities “First Book Award.” Kathryn follows Emily Callaci, Daniel Ussishkin, and Jennifer Ratner-Rosenhagen in winning the award.

“The Center’s First Book Award is funded by a short-term humanities programming grant from the A.W. Mellon Foundation. The First Book program is open to all tenure-track, junior faculty in the humanities and interpretive social sciences with manuscripts that are near completion, but still in a position to benefit from review. The goal is to turn solid and promising manuscripts into first-rate books.”
