January 2017


Andrew Stuhl, a History of Science department alumni who earned his Ph.D. in 2013 and is now Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania, has been awarded a 2017 DHST Prize for Young Scholars for his dissertation Empires on Ice: Science, Nature, and the Making of the Modern Arctic.

This prize is awarded every four years by the International Union of the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology/Division of History of Science and Technology (IUHPST/DHST) to historians of science and technology for outstanding doctoral dissertations, completed within the last four years and consists of a certificate, assistance with travel and accommodation expenditures to the 25th IUHPST/DHST Congress in Rio de Janeiro in July 2017 and waiver of the registration fee.

Andrew continues a fine tradition as two other department alums have also won this prize: Paul Erickson and Michitake Aso in 2009 and 2013 respectively. Congratulations Andrew.
