Alan Taylor, EMSI 2013 Distinguished Lecturer, wins Pulitzer Prize in History

Please join the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute in congratulating Alan Taylor for winning the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in History for his book, The Internal Enemy: Slavery and War in Virginia, 1772-1832 (Norton 2013).  

As the 2013 EMSI Distinguished Lecturer, Professor Taylor presented the cutting-edge research for the Internal Enemy during a master class with USC faculty and graduate students. We are proud to have hosted conversations on this book, which has been lauded by the Pulitzer committee as "a meticulous and insightful account of why runaway slaves in the colonial era were drawn to the British side as potential liberators." The Pulitzer Award is an outstanding recognition of the importance of Professor Taylor's rigorous analysis of slavery in America in the early modern period.
 
We send Alan Taylor our heartfelt congratulations!
