Meet our 2023 Chair: Philippa Levine

The acclaimed multi-disciplinary historian Philippa Levine will chair the jury for the 2023 Cundill History Prize.

Levine, whose wide-ranging research interests include the British Empire, gender, race, science, medicine, and society, is Walter Prescott Webb Chair in History and Ideas at the University of Texas at Austin.

“The Cundill History Prize shines a spotlight on works of the highest scholarly standards that are not only compelling reads, but also tell us something new about ourselves. In 2023, that has never been more important, and I am honoured to be chairing this year’s jury and diving into extraordinary works of scholarship that will also guide our understanding of the contemporary world. I look forward to working with my fellow jurors.” Philippa Levine
