Maley Sullivan (LC 2012) has been awarded one of twelve undergraduate history prizes by the North American Conference on British Studies (NACBS). Her winning essay, titled “‘England’s difficulty is Ireland’s opportunity’: Irish nationalism and mobilization during the Second Boer War, 1896-1902,” is based on her seminar thesis in HIST 450 last semester and was also presented during a poster session in Watzek Library.
The NACBS is the largest interdisciplinary academic organization devoted to British and imperial studies. The undergraduate essay contest is open all to colleges and universities in the US and Canada and is highly competitive. This is a great honor for Maley!
