Owen Hyman

Owen Hyman, a 2007 and 2012 Department of History and Political Science graduate, recently received the highly prestigious C. Vann Woodward Prize for the Best Doctoral Dissertation in Southern History from the Southern Historical Association.

The purpose of the Southern Historical Association is to promote “interest and research in southern history; the collection and preservation of the South’s historical records; the encouragement of state and local historical societies in the South; and the support and promotion of history education at all levels throughout the region.”

Since his days at Southeastern, Hyman has received many honors, including the History of Science Society’s inaugural Rainger Prize for Early-Career Scholars in 2018; the Center for Ethical Business Cultures’ Halloran Prize in the History of Corporate Responsibility in 2015; and the William S. Coker Award for the Best Graduate Paper on Gulf South History in 2011, while attending Southeastern. Hyman openly credits the strong foundation he received within the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences for contributing to his success.
