The Roth Endowment offers supplementary project funds to a grantee of the American Scandinavian Foundation planning to work in Denmark. This prize was instituted in honor of Lois Roth’s friend, Sonja Bundgard-Nielsen, long director of the Danish American Foundation.
This year’s award went to Earl Hodil (Yale) to help support his dissertation research on the complex seventeenth-century political and economic relationship between Russia and Denmark. His research into this period, when both nations sought a Baltic alliance, will fill an important, under-researched gap in the academic literature on the region.
