UW History Professor Wins 2012 Nebraska Book Award

Women on the North American Plains

Women on the North American Plains, edited by University of Wyoming Associate Professor of History Renée Laegreid and Sandra K. Mathews of Nebraska Wesleyan University, was awarded the 2012 Nebraska Book Award for Anthology Honor.

The book's twelve essays – arranged chronologically within sub-regions – draw upon innovative theoretical and methodological approaches, including gender/transgender studies, decolonization of Native peoples, and the influence of nation states. They form the first comprehensive view of women on the North American Plains, exploring the richness, variety, and complexity of their experiences. Individually and collectively, they reveal the intricate relations that tie together people and place, supplying perspectives on the diverse lives of women who have been – and who continue to be – too often ignored in wider histories of the Plains.

The Nebraska Book Awards program, sponsored by the Nebraska Center for the Book, recognizes and honors books that are written by Nebraska authors, published by Nebraska publishers, set in Nebraska or concerning Nebraska.
