Congratulations to Emily Prifogle (University of Michigan Law), whose legal-historical dissertation was recently awarded the Julian Mezey Dissertation Award by the Association for the Study of Law, Culture & the Humanities. Prifogle's dissertation, completed at Princeton University, is titled "Cows, Cars, and Criminals: The Legal Landscape of the Rural Midwest, 1920-1975." Prifogle shared the award with Elizabeth Rule (also currently at the University of Michigan, in the Center for Indigenous Politics and Policy). The screenshot below is from the conference program.
