We are celebrating at Permanent Black today.
Prachi Deshpande, whose first book CREATIVE PASTS we published years ago, has just won the Infosys Prize. As reported by the New Indian Express:
"Winners from six diverse fields -- Engineering and Computer Science, Humanities, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences and Social Sciences -- received a pure gold medal, a citation and a purse of USD 100,000. They were picked from among 257 nominations. The lone woman among the winners this year was Prachi Deshpande from the Centre for Studies in Social Sciences (CSSS), Kolkata who won the Humanities award for her nuanced and sophisticated treatment of South Asian historiography."
The book is available in paperback.
