Dr. Shannon L. Fogg, assistant professor of history and political science at Missouri S&T, recently received the 2009 Missouri Conference on History Book Award. The award is given to the best book on any historical topic written by a Missouri resident published in 2008. Fogg received the award for her book The Politics of Everyday Life in Vichy France: Foreigners, Undesirables, and Strangers.

Fogg earned her Ph.D. from the University of Iowa and began her career at Missouri S&T in 2004, where she received an Excellence in Teaching Award in 2006. She is currently in Paris studying France’s archives as part of a grant to research anti-Semitism in rural areas of Britain and France before and during World War II.

This is the second year an S&T historian has won the award. Last year Dr. John C. McManus, associate professor of history and political science, won for his book Alamo in the Ardennes: The Untold Story of the American Soldiers Who Made the Defense of Bastogne Possible.
