Carolyn Eichner Named Finalist

Congratulations to Women’s & Gender Studies’ own Associate Professor Carolyn Eichner! The French translation of her book on women in the Paris Commune, Franchir les barricades: Les femmes dans la Commune de Paris (Editions de la Sorbonne, 2020), is a finalist for the Prix Augustin Thierry, awarded by the City of Paris. This extremely prestigious award recognizes a work of history focusing on any period between Antiquity and the late 19th-century, and for an American historian to be selected as a finalist is an especially major honor. F√©licitations!
