Religion, Community, and Slavery on the Colonial Southern Frontier

Congratulations to Dr. James V.H. Melton, Professor of History, whose most recent book was awarded the Austrian Studies Book Prize by the Center for Austrian Studies at the University of Minnesota. Melton’s work, Religion, Community, and Slavery on the Colonial Southern Frontier, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2015. The prize marks the second in as many years for an Emory historian of German-speaking Europe, following Professor Brian Vick‘s award last year for The Congress of Vienna: Power and Politics after Napoleon (Harvard University Press, 2014).
