We are very happy to report that two authors whose books were recently featured in New Texts Out Now (NEWTON) were recipients of prestigious awards at the 2011 Middle East Studies Association convention.
Rochelle Davis, whose book Palestinian Village Histories: Geographies of the Displaced was featured in NEWTON last week, was one of two winners awarded the 2011 Albert Hourani Book Award.
Alan Mikhail, whose book Nature and Empire in Ottoman Egypt: An Environmental History was featured in NEWTON in October, was awarded the 2011 Roger Owen Book Award.
In addition, we are delighted that the second winner of the 2011 Albert Hourani Book Award, Nile Green, for his book Bombay Islam: The Religious Economy of the West Indian Ocean, 1840-1915, will be featured in a forthcoming NEWTON post coming soon.
We would like to extend our congratulations to all the other award winners at MESA: Sebouh Aslanian, who received the 2011 Houshang Pourshariati Book Award in Iranian Studies for From the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean: The Global Trade Networks of Armenian Merchants from New Julfa; Abdel Razzaq Takriti, who received the 2011 Malcolm H. Kerr Dissertation Award in the Humanities for Revolution and Absolutism: Oman, 1965-1976; Orkideh Behrouzan, who received the 2011 Malcolm H. Kerr Dissertation Award in the Humanities for Prozàk Diaries: Post-Rupture Subjectivities and Psychiatric Futures; Rania Kassab Sweis, who received the 2011 Graduate Student Paper Prize for Saving Egypt’s Village Girls: Rights, Embodiment, and Gendered Vulnerability in a Global Youth Initiative; and all faculty, students, and staff of Bahraini institutions of higher education, who were awarded the 2011 Academic Freedom Award, and who, in the words of the award committee, “by speaking out, documenting abuses, and engaging in myriad other forms of resistance have struggled against a range of brutal assaults by the Bahraini government upon academic freedom and upon the autonomy and integrity of the country's educational institutions.”
