Jeremy Best named to Waterloo Centre for German Studies Book Prize shortlist


Established in 2017, the The Waterloo Centre for German Studies Book Prize recognizes first-time authors whose scholarly work contributes substantially to our understanding of any aspect of German-speaking society. The prize foregrounds good writing, scholarly relevance, originality, and the ability to reach audiences beyond the academic sphere.

Jeremy Best, Associate Professor in the Department of History, was named to the shortlist for his publication, “Heavenly Fatherland: German Missionary Culture and Globalization in the Age of Empire,” (University of Toronto Press).

The winner, who receives a CAD $3,000 prize, will be announced mid-December.
