SIHS Marraro Prize

Editor's note:

Konstantina Zanou’s recent book, "Transnational Patriotism in the Mediterranean, 1800-1850: Stammering the Nation”  (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2018), was awarded the 2019 Marraro Prize in Italian History by the Society for Italian Historical Studies (SIHS).  The selection committee stated: "With an exemplary research effort consisting of archival documents and primary-source texts in Italian, French, Greek, and English, Zanou makes a major contribution to our understanding of how nationalism unfolded in modern Greece and Italy. Her book is an outstanding work of comparative history. Summoning up a largely unknown world of Greek and Italian literati and political intellectuals, she illuminates an era characterized in both cultures by an epochal transition from empire to nation-state.”
