Heaney earns Sturgis Leavitt Honorable Mention
Dr. Christopher Heaney of the Pennsylvania State University has earned honorable mention in the Sturgis Leavitt Award competition for his article “Skull Walls: The Peruvian Dead and the Remains of Entanglement.”
The committee observed Heaney’s article “presented not only an entangled history of museum studies and collecting politics, but also a transnational Indigenous history of the Americas, bridging the fields of Native North America and Indigenous histories of Latin America.”
The Sturgis Leavitt Award is given annually for the best article or book chapter on a Latin American or Iberian subject published by a SECOLAS member in the previous calendar year. The article may be written in any language.
