I’m very happy to announce that the winner of this year’s SEA Essay Contest is Shelby Johnson, Assistant Professor of English at Florida Atlantic University, for the essay “‘The fate of St. Domingo awaits you’: Robert Wedderburn’s Unfinished Revolution”.
This year’s judges also chose an honorable mention: Nan Goodman, Professor of English and Jewish Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, for “The Jewish Apostate and the American Expatriate: Leave-Taking in the Early American Republic”.
Please join me in congratulating Shelby and Nan on their excellent work, and in thanking our panel of judges for their time and care in reviewing the submissions.
Wishing everyone a very happy new year,
