2016 Hamilton Book Awards Author Showcase

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 Karma 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.
