Dr. Michael T. Williamson (English) was awarded the 2014 Space Between Society Essay Prize for “Doubled Crossings: Yiddish Writers Respond to the Treaty of Non-Aggression Between Germany and Russia,” a paper he presented at the 16th annual international conference of the Space Between Society

The conference was held at the Institute of English Studies, University of London, July 17–19, 2014.

The paper offers, in the words of one of the three prize committee reviewers, an important, stimulating and rigorously researched expansion of the borders of the Space Between Society to include Eastern European literature.
