2019 Charles Schmitt Prize Winner

2019 Charles Schmitt Prize Winner

We are delighted to announce that the winner of the Charles Schmitt prize for 2019 is Jon Cooper of Stanford University, for his essay, ‘A Science of Concord: The Politics of Commercial Knowledge in Mid-Eighteenth-Century Britain’. The winning essay was recently published in Intellectual History Review.

The quality of top submissions was particularly high this year. So the panel of judges also wish to commend the runners up. They are Michelle Pfeffer for her essay, ‘Paganism, Natural Reason, and Immortality: Charles Blount and John Toland’s Histories of the Soul’; Hugo Bonin for his essay, ‘Between Panacea and Poison: “Democracy” in British Socialist Thought, 1881–1891’; and Paige Donaghy for her essay ‘False Conceptions and Wind Eggs’.

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.
