Past & Present was delighted to learn that Dr. Joseph La Hausse de Lalouvière (Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge) has been awarded the 2022 French Colonial Historical Society Best Article Prize.
The award was made for his article “A Business Archive of the French Illegal Slave Trade in the Nineteenth Century” which appeared in Past & Present No. 252 (August 2021). To enable more people to read Dr. La Hausse de Lalouvière’s prize winning scholarship our publisher Oxford University Press has made the article free to read for several months.
The Society was also delighted to learn that during the same round of French Colonial Historical Society awards, Dr. Arthur Asseraf (Pembroke College, University of Cambridge) received an Honourable Mention for his Open Access article “Mass Media and the Colonial Informant: Messaoud Djebari and the French Empire, 1880–1901” in Past & Present No. 254 (February 2022).
Our congradulations to both authors on their scholarship being recognised in this way.
