Susan Mann Receives AHA Award for Scholarly Distinction
Susan Mann, professor of History, emerita, has been announced as one of three winners of the American Historical Association's 2014 Award for Scholarly Distinction. These annual awards "honor senior historians in the United States for lifetime achievement in the discipline."
The AHA's prize committee highlighted the distinguished contributions of two of Mann's prize-winning monographs, Precious Records: Women in China's Long Eighteenth Century (1997) and The Talented Women of the Zhang Family (2007). In sum, the committee concluded, Prof. Mann "is unquestionably the premier historian of women and gender in late imperial/early modern China."
Prof. Mann will be honored at a ceremony at the 129th Annual Meeting of the AHA in New York, NY, January 2-5, 2015.
