Lina Del Castillo has earned honorable mention

Lina Del Castillo of the University of Texas has earned honorable mention from the Sturgis Leavitt Award for Best Article committee for her article entitled “Entangled Fates: French-Trained Naturalists, the First Colombian Republic, and the Materiality of Geopolitical Practice, 1819-1830,” published in the Hispanic American Historical Review.

The committee found her article a fascinating and truly transatlantic history that brought together French science, Colombian independence, and even Ecuador.

Nesvig has earned honorable mention for Promiscuous Power

Martin A. Nesvig of the University of Miami earned an honorable mention for his book entitled Promiscuous Power: An Unorthodox History of New Spain from the Alfred B. Thomas Book Award Committee.

The committee said of his book, “Nesvig employs archival research to construct a narrative of local politics in early colonial Mexico. In contrast to many authors that discuss either colonial power or indigenous resistance, he brings to light the resistance of Michoacán’s Spanish residents to the imposition of power by both the state and the church. With chapter titles such as ‘I Shit on You, Sir; or rather, An Unorthodox Lot of Catholics Who Didn’t Fear the Inquisition,’ Nesvig provides a humorously irreverent portrait of New Spain beyond Tenochtitlán.”

Congratulations from SECOLAS.
