Katz Receives Honorable Mention for Koren Prize

March 15, 2021

Congratulations to Associate Professor Ethan Katz, whose article Jewish Citizens of an Imperial Nation-State: Toward a French-Algerian Frame for French Jewish History" has been awarded an Honorable Mention for the William Koren Jr. Prize, by the Society for French Historical Studies. The SFHS awards the Koren Prize to the most outstanding article on any period of French history published the previous year by a scholar appointed at a college or university in the United States or Canada. 

"Jewish Citizens of an Imperial Nation-State" is accessible for free through June, and the Committee announced that it was "highly impressed by Ethan Katz's stimulating reinterpetation of French Jewish history through a French-Algerian frame, raising critical questions related to issues of citizenship and identity.  The article is a significant contribution to the history of twentieth-century France and its empire, the history of French Jews, and French Jewish history."
