ABF Research Professor Bonnie Honig has been awarded The David Easton Award by the Foundations of Political Theory Section of the American Political Science Association (APSA) for her book, Emergency Politics: Paradox, Law, Democracy (Princeton University Press, 2009).
The David Easton Award is given for a book that broadens the horizons of contemporary political science by engaging issues of philosophical significance in political life through any of a variety of approaches in the social sciences and humanities.
Working in legal and political theory, Bonnie Honig has written on the cultural politics of immigration, conceptions of time and progress in political and legal thinking, discretion and emergency power, popular constitutionalism, and the politics of mourning. Her latest book project, on Sophocles' Antigone, is forthcoming.
The Award will be publicly presented at the APSA meetings in August, 2012.
