For his book Beyond Patriotic Phobias: Connections, Cooperation, and Solidarity in the Peruvian-Chilean Pacific World, history professor Joshua Savala has won a second honorable mention for best book published in 2022. Savala won an honorable-mention Social Sciences Award through the Southern Cone Studies section of the Latin American Studies Association. His book previously won an honorable mention for best book on Peru.

Savala’s book is a social history of collaboration and solidarity forged by Peruvians and Chileans from the mid-19th through early 20th centuries. Through careful archival work, Savala highlights the overlooked cooperative relationships of workers across borders, including maritime port workers, doctors, and the police. By following the movement of people, diseases, and ideas, the book reconstructs the circulation that created a South American Pacific world. He is currently working on publishing a Spanish translation of the book.
