Winner of The Historians of British Art Book Award

Congratulations to Temi Odumosu, postdoctoral researcher at K3, who won The Historians of British Art Book Award for her book  Africans in English Caricature 1769–1819: Black Jokes White Humour, in the category a single-authored book with a subject between 1600-1800. 

… a carefully researched and brilliantly written analysis of racial caricature at a key moment in the history of the development of British (and European and American) representational ideas about race. She identifies key visual themes of excess and licentiousness in relation to the representation of Africans in British visual culture that are familiar to scholars, but interprets them through a complex genealogy of images and cultural referents culled from extensive archival work to produce a novel critical analysis. The result is a fresh interpretation of a series of historical images that continue to haunt us today. (from the press release of the winners)

The award winners were chosen from a nominating list of over one hundred books from more than thirty different presses.
