Congratulations to David Brion Davis who was awarded the 2013 National Humanities Medal!

The National Endowment for the Humanities has recognized Dr. Davis's work as a historian, for reshaping our understanding of history.  As a WWII veteran, Dr. Davis has shed light on the contradiction of a free Nation built by forced labor, and his examinations of slavery and abolitionism drive us to keep making moral progress in our time.  Dr. Davis is Sterling Professor Emertius of American History at Yale University and serves on the Board of Editors of The New England Quarterly.

Congratulations to 2013 Whitehill Award winner, Iax Saxine.  

His essay "The Performance of Peace: Indians, Speculators, and the Politics of Property on the Maine Frontier, 1735-1737," is available in the September 2014 issue of NEQ.
