It gives great pleasure to report that, at the annual meeting of the British Association for American Studies (BAAS) held at the University of Exeter this month, Celeste-Marie Bernier, Senior Research Fellow at the RAI in 2012-2013, was awarded the Association’s Eighth Annual Book Prize for her book Characters of Blood: Black Heroism in the Transatlantic Imagination (University of Virginia Press) as the best book in American Studies published in 2012.
The RAI will host the inaugural Sir John Elliott Lecture in Atlantic History at 5pm on Friday 3rd May. It is the Institute’s privilege that the lecturer should be Sir John himself, on the topic ‘Spanning the Atlantic’.
No scholar has done more to explain and illuminate the history of the Atlantic and the nations and empires that have bordered it than Professor Sir John Elliott, FBA. For more than fifty years, his work has shaped the understanding of European settlement and colonization in the Americas, imperial Spain, and the empires of the Atlantic world. Sir John has held posts at Cambridge and London universities, and at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, and was Regius Professor of Modern History (as it was then called) at Oxford University from 1990 to 1997.
