Adam Goodman wins UIC’s Rising Star Award for Humanities, Arts, Design, and Architecture

Please join us in congratulating Adam Goodman, the winner of this year's UIC Rising Star Award for Humanities, Arts, Design, and Architecture.  The Rising Star Award is "bestowed on individuals who show exceptional promise to become future leaders," and Adam certainly fits the bill.  He was, last year, a 2022-23 Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University.  And his 2020 book, The Deportation Machine, was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in History and received the PROSE Award in North American History from the Association of American Publishers, the Henry Adams Book Prize from the Society for History in the Federal Government, and Honorable Mention for the Theodore Saloutos Book Award from the Immigration and Ethnic History Society.  He has also written articles, essays, and reviews for publications such as the Journal of American History, The Nation, and the Washington Post, and discussed Latino history and immigration policy in Spanish- and English-language interviews on Latino USA, Univisión, BBC Radio 4, CSPAN’s Book TV, Mexico’s TV UNAM and Canal 22, and BackStory, among other programs and outlets.
