The Middle Atlantic Council of Latin American Studies has awarded its 2020 Harold Eugene Davis Prize to Luis Roniger, Reynolds Professor of Latin American Studies in the Department of Politics and International Affairs, and his co-author Leonardo Senkman of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in recognition of their article “Conspirationism, Synarchism and the Long Shadow of Peron in Argentina,” Journal of Modern Jewish Studies, 17:4 (2018): 434-454.
The prize is awarded annually to the best article or book chapter on Latin America published in the previous two years. Roniger and Senkman’s publication is part of a broader research project on Conspiracy Theories in Latin America that has already led to several refereed journal articles in English and an open-access book in Spanish published by the international Latin American Studies Association in December 2019.
