We are proud to announce that the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences Canada Prix du Canada en sciences humaines 2014 has been awarded to Pierre Anctil, Full Professor in the Department of History, for his book Jacob-Isaac Segal, 1896-1954 : Un poète yiddish de Montréal et son milieu.
Furthermore, alumnus and PhD student Hugues Théorêt received the Prix du Canada en sciences sociales 2014 for his book Les chemises bleues : Adrien Arcand, journaliste antisémite canadien-français.
The Canada Prizes are awarded annually to the best scholarly books in the humanities and social sciences that have received funding from the Awards to Scholarly Publications Program (ASPP). Celebrating the best Canadian scholarly books—not simply within a single academic discipline, but across all the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences—the Canada Prizes are awarded to books that make an exceptional contribution to scholarship, are engagingly written, and enrich the social, cultural and intellectual life of Canada.*
