Creating a Common Polity wins the SCS 2015 Goodwin Award

UC Press is pleased to share the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) announcement that Emily Mackil’s book, Creating a Common Polity: Religion, Economy, and Politics in the Making of the Greek Koinon, will receive the 2015 Goodwin Award—the group’s top prize.

The SCS, in the official announcement, recognizes the work as “a model of what scholarship in ancient history should ideally be: technically impeccable, theoretically bold and imaginative, rigorously argued, and—not least—a pleasure for both experts and novices to read.”


Additionally, we are extremely proud of the continued recognition of the books in our program with Susanna Elm’s Sons of Hellenism, Fathers of the Church: Emperor Julian, Gregory of Nazianzus, and the Vision of Rome and Tim Whitmarsh’s Beyond a Second Sophistic: Adventures in Greek Postclassicism winning in 2013 and 2014, respectively.

Many congratulations to our authors and their winning titles! Remember to visit us at Booth 108 at the Society for Classical Studies annual meeting to view copies of these books and more.
