The Khayrallah Prize in Migration Studies recognizes outstanding scholarly studies from any discipline focusing on Middle East migration and diasporas. Two prizes are given annually. The first prize, in the amount of $1000, is awarded to an established scholar. The second prize, in the amount of $1000, is awarded to a graduate student. This year the selection committee did not award the graduate student prize.
In reaching its decision, the award selection committee noted that “Stacy Fahrenthold’s Between the Ottomans and the Entente is a tour-de-force of transnational history. Written in a fluent, clear, humane style, it recounts in gripping, analytically penetrating fashion the shifting responses of Syro-Lebanese migrants living in the Americas to the tumultuous events and rapidly changing circumstances of the early twentieth-century Eastern Mediterranean, from the Ottoman constitutional revolution of July 1908 to the Ottoman entry into the First World War in November 1914 and the declaration of a French mandate over Syria in 1920.
