Wolf-Erich-Kellner Prize 2022

I’m grateful to announce that my second book (Habilitation) Qui tacet: Die Politik des Schweigens im Europa des langen 19. Jahrhunderts (Qui tacet: The Politics of Silence in Nineteenth-Century Europe) – which I’m currently preparing for publication – has been awarded the 2022 Book Prize of the Wolf-Erich-Kellner Memorial Foundation. The prize is curated by the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation for Freedom and honors publications that address the history and intellectual foundations of liberalism. The award ceremony will held on 10 November 2022 at the Foundation’s annual Liberalism Colloquium in Berlin.

The list of previous laureates includes many excellent historians, among them my long-term mentor Jörn Leonhard and my former colleague Fabian Rausch.

My sincere thanks go out to the jury.
