PRIZE ANNOUNCEMENT

2008 Kenny Prize Lecture

In 2008 the Robert S. Kenny prize for outstanding work in the field of Marxist and labour/left studies has been awarded to Andrée Lévesque for her book Red Travellers: Jeanne Corbin and her Comrades, published by McGill-Queen's University Press (translated by Yvonne M. Klein).

"An important addition to the existing literature on the communist party in Canada, offering both a tantalizing view of one communist life but also a better sense of the difficult and tumultuous times that made her the communist she was." - Joan Sangster, Trent University, Left History

Andrée Lévesque is the author of Making and Breaking the Rules: Women in Quebec, 1919-1939. She teaches history at McGill University.

This year's Kenny Lecture will be held on Thursday May 8. More information on the lecture can be found here.
