Konstantina Zanou, 2015-2016 Paris IAS Fellow receives the Marraro 2019 Italian History Prize from the Society for Italian Historical Studies (SIHS) for her book Transnational Patriotism in the Mediterranean, 1800-1850: Stammering the Nation (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2018)
The Helen & Howard Marraro Prize in Italian History is awarded to works that deal with Italian history at a given time, Italian cultural history or Italian-American relations. Books must be published in English by historians whose usual residence is in North America.
The selection committee said: "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".
