(Jasanoff, Maya) Maya Jasanoff is the Coolidge Professor of History at Harvard. She is the author of the prize-winning Edge of Empire: Lives, Culture, and Conquest in the East, 1750-1850 and Liberty’s Exiles: American Loyalists in the Revolutionary World , which received the National Book Critics’ Circle Award for Non-Fiction and the George Washington Book Prize. A 2013 Guggenheim Fellow, Jasanoff won the 2017 Windham-Campbell Prize for Non-Fiction. Her essays and reviews appear frequently in publications including the New York Times, the Guardian, and the New York Review of Books. In The Dawn Watch: Joseph Conrad in a Global World (Penguin Press) Jasanoff reveals Conrad as a prophet of globalization. As an immigrant from Poland to England, and in travels from Malaya to Congo to the Caribbean, Conrad navigated an interconnected world, and captured it in a literary oeuvre of extraordinary depth. The Dawn Watch embarks on a spell-binding expedition into the dark heart of Conrad’s world—and through it to our own.
