Carolyn Dean honored with Franklin Pease
G. Y. Memorial Prize
"Hybridity and its Discontents: Considering Visual Culture
in Colonial Spanish America" (Colonial Latin American
Review vol. 12., no. 1, pp. 5-35, June 2003), coauthored
by UCSC professor of history of art and visual culture Carolyn
Dean and Smith College associate professor of art history Dana
Leibsohn, has been awarded the Franklin Pease G. Y. Memorial
Prize for the best article published in Colonial Latin American
Review in 2003 and 2004. This same article also received
the 2004 Conference prize for the best article on Latin American
history from the AHA Conference on Latin American History.
The jury for the 2003-04 Colonial Latin American Review
prize consisted of three distinguished scholars of colonial
Latin America, all members of CLAR's Advisory Board: Mercedes
López-Baralt, Universidad de Puerto Rico, Río
Piedras; Stuart B. Schwartz, Yale University; and Eric Van Young,
University of California, San Diego. The article was praised
as "well written, thoughtful, wide-ranging, and interesting,"
with one reader observing that in the essay "a winning
combination of erudition and theoretical deconstruction humbles
the contemporary scholar into accepting the complexity of a
reality that will never completely unveil its mysteries."
The Pease Prize will be announced in the upcoming (December
2005) issue of the journal.
