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.
