Congratulations to Professor James Carley, who has just been awarded the 2013 Pierre Chauveau Medal of the Royal Society of Canada! The medal is awarded biennally for a distinguished contribution to knowledge in the humanities other than Canadian literature and Canadian history. The medal will be presented to Professor Carley at the Awards Ceremony during the Annual Symposium and the Annual General Meeting of the RSC in Banff in November.
The Pierre Chauveau Medal was established in 1951 to honour the memory of Pierre J.O. Chauveau (1820-1890), FRSC, writer, orator, educator, Canadian statesman and the second President of the RSC (1883-1884). He was the first Premier of Quebec (1867-1872) and Speaker of the Senate (1874).
