2017 Charles Schmitt Prize Winning Essay

The International Society for Intellectual History is delighted to announce that the 2017 Charles Schmitt Prize has been awarded to Mark Thomas Young of the University of Bergen, Norway, for his essay, ‘Enchanting Automata: Wilkins and the Wonder of Workmanship’. This year’s competition received a good range of high-qualities entries, so the judges would like to commend Mark Thomas Young on his essay. The prize is awarded on an annual basis in honour of the contribution of Charles B. Schmitt (1933-1986) to intellectual history. The recipient receives £250, plus £50 worth of Routledge books, and a year’s free membership of the ISIH with a subscription to the Society’s quarterly journal Intellectual History Review. The paper awarded the prize will also be published in the Intellectual History Review.
