American Historical Association Annual Meeting

We had a great time meeting authors and selling books at the 2015 annual meeting of the American Historical Association in New York City.

978-0-8223-5557-1_prCongratulations to Afsaneh Najmabadi, whose book Professing Selves: Transsexuality and Same-Sex Desire in Contemporary Iran won the 2015 John Boswell Prize from the Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History. The committee said the book “provides an excellent introduction to both Iranian debates on sexuality and to wider understandings of the self, while considering carefully the limits of both ‘trans’ and ‘queer.’”

Congratulations also to Lyman Johnson, author of Workshop of Revolution: Plebeian Buenos Aires and the Atlantic World, 1776–1810, who won the 2014 Distinguished Service Award from the Conference on Latin American History. (That award was won in 2013 by retired Duke University Press Editor Valerie Millholland.)

We love it when authors visit the booth to pose with their books. Check out some of their photos below and more on our Facebook page.
