Sponsored by Cornell University’s School of Industrial & Labor Relations in collaboration with the Labor and Working-Class History Association (LAWCHA), this prize honors the late Philip Taft, one of the foremost historians of the American labor movement, particularly the American Federation of Labor.  The awards committee wrote, “this beautifully argued study of feminist politics in borderland communities provides a model for how to present transnational scholarship.”  LAWCHA announced the award during the OAH meeting in Boston at its own awards ceremony.  Here is the press release:

Congratulations Sonia!!
