Suh’s Article on Pearl S. Buck Wins Article Prize from the Society for U. S. Intellectual History

Congratulations to Assistant Professor Chris Suh, who has won the Dorothy Ross Article Prize from the Society for U. S. Intellectual History for “‘America’s Gunpowder Women’: Pearl S. Buck and the Struggle for American Feminism, 1937-1941,” published in Pacific Historical Review last year. Outlining their decision, the award committee wrote: “In this article, Suh sheds new light on the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Pearl Buck and her role in international feminist politics in the 1930s. He draws on archival research at Princeton, the Library of Congress, and Buck’s personal papers to interweave the history of American literature with race, gender and politics in the New Deal era, all in a global context.” Earlier this year the same piece won the W. Turrentine Jackson (Article) Prize of the Pacific Coast Branch, American Historical Association.
