The MI is pleased to announce one of its fellows, Katie Ann-Marie Bugyis, Assistant Professor in the Program of Liberal Studies, has been awarded the 2020 Frank S. and Elizabeth D. Brewer Prize of the American Society of Church History for her book The Care of Nuns: The Ministries of Benedictine Women in England during the Central Middle Ages. The Frank S. and Elizabeth D. Brewer Prize annually honors outstanding scholarship in the history of Christianity by a first-time author.

This prize is a very high honor from the ASCH. The competition for it is stiff, and the assessment process is most rigorous. Winners are awarded a monetary prize as well as a certificate of award. The prize will be formally awarded virtually at the ASCH Annual Meeting on Thursday, February 4th.
