Join the Libraries and winners of the 2016 Hamilton Book Awards in celebration of their research. These UT Austin scholars will provide short, engaging talks about their Hamilton Book Award-winning publications.
Speakers include grand prize winner Charles Ramirez Berg on his book The Classical Mexican Cinema: The Poetics of the Exceptional Golden Age Films, Luis H. Zayas on his book Forgotten Citizens: Deportation, Children, and the Making of American Exiles and Orphans, Madeline Y. Hsu on her book The Good Immigrants: How the Yellow Peril Became the Model Minority. A presentation about Kamran Asdar Ali's book Communism in Pakistan: Politics and Class Activism 1947-1972 will be included though the author will not be in attendance.
These presentations are the extension of a partnership between the Libraries and Hamilton Book Awards sponsor, the University Co-op. Since 2013, the Libraries has hosted an exhibition of posters provided by the Co-op featuring the annual Hamilton Award nominees in the University Federal Credit Union (UFCU) Room in the Perry-Castañeda Library, to highlight and promote the research and creative contributions of the UT community.
