  • Valerie Biousse and Nancy J. Newman’s book Neuro-Ophthalmology Illustrated won the British Medical Association 1st Prize Award in the international category of Neurology.
  • Miriam Udel’s book Never Better! The Modern Jewish Picaresque won the National Jewish Book Award for Modern Jewish Thought and Experience.

Three titles were brought into publication with help from the CFDE’s Scholarly Writing and Publishing Fund, which provides small grants to faculty to hire an editor to help take a manuscript from one stage to the next. They are

  • Paula Frew’s  Poverty in the United States: Women’s Voices.
  • Karen Scheib’s Pastoral Care: Telling the Stories of Our Lives.
  • Jonathan Master’s Provincial Soldiers and Imperial Instability in the Histories of Tacitus.
