Congratulations to Dr. Joseph La Hausse de Lalouvière (Emmanuel College) who has been awarded the 2022 French Colonial Historical Society Best Article Prize.

The award was made for his article “A Business Archive of the French Illegal Slave Trade in the Nineteenth Century” which appeared in Past & Present No. 252 (August 2021).

And congratulations to Dr. Arthur Asseraf (Pembroke College) who, during the same round of French Colonial Historical Society awards, received an Honourable Mention for his Open Access article “Mass Media and the Colonial Informant: Messaoud Djebari and the French Empire, 1880–1901” in which was published in Past & Present No. 254 (February 2022).
