The CSSH Jack Goody Prize for 2018 has been awarded to Andrew Canessa, for his paper “Indigenous Conflict in Bolivia Explored through an African Lens: Towards a Comparative Analysis of Indigeneity” (CSSH 60-2).
In this essay, Hans Steinmüller provides some additional insights from his fieldwork in the Wa State of Myanmar that formed the basis of his recent CSSH article, “Conscription by Capture in the Wa State of Myanmar: Acquaintances, Anonymity, Patronage, and the Rejection of Mutuality.”
Socialism is alive and well on the pages of CSSH, and its fortunes in the larger world have improved in recent years. Even the “failed” socialisms of the past are attracting new attention. It would seem that much we thought was decided in the history of socialism is worth reconsidering.
Congratulations to Kimberly Arkin on winning this year’s Berkshire Conference of Women Historians article prize for “an article in any field of history other than women, gender, and/or sexuality.” Cambridge University Press has kindly made the article free to access.
