Winner of 2019 Archival History Award: Wolfe and Stallybrass for “Material Culture of Record-Keeping”

Includes the 2019 Archival History Award (Chapter 7: Peter Stallybrass and Heather Wolfe, “The Material Culture of Record-Keeping in Early Modern England”), Oxford University Press, 2018.

At the August meeting of the Archival History Section (of the Society of American Archivists), the 2019 Archival History Award was given to Heather Wolfe and Peter Stallybrass for their jointly written article, “The Material Culture of Record-Keeping in Early Modern England.” Printed in Archives and Information in the Early Modern World, edited by Liesbeth Corens, Kate Peters, and Alexandra Walsham (Oxford University Press, 2018), the article describes the importance of materiality in understanding how early modern Europeans used and conceptualized documents related to legal transactions and economic trade.

Liesbeth Corens, one of the co-editors of the original book which included the Wolfe-Stallybrass article, posted a comment recently about the award:

This marks the second time that the Archival History Section, a member group of the Society of American Archivists, awarded a prize for the best article published in the previous year. Every spring, an award committee of the Archival History Section accepts and reviews article nominations. Look for the next call for nominations in 2020!
