Hans Lucht receives book award

Hans Lucht, Post Doc. at Department of Anthropology, has received this year's Elliott P. Skinner Book Award for his work "Darkness Before Daybreak" concerning African migrants in southern Italy. The Elliott P. Skinner Book Award is granted to the author by Association for Africanist Anthropology on some of the following criterias: 

  • "Originality of scholarship, creativity of insight, and quality of writing"
  • "Advancements to both field-based data and theoretical scholarship, with a focus upon contributions in the realms of fieldwork or service to Africa"
  • "Clear potential for the book to reach an audience beyond the Africanist scholarly community or to promote the further understanding of sub-Saharan Africa for a broader audience"
