Associate Professor of History Celeste Day Moore’s recent book, Soundscapes of Liberation: African American Music in Postwar France, was named the winner of Best History in the category Best Historical Research on Recorded Jazz in the 2022 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards for Excellence.

 It was also recently selected as part of the coups de coeur by the American Library in Paris Book Award committee, which recognizes a selection of books as having special merit. Moore’s book, which was published by Duke University Press in 2021, traces the popularization of African American music in postwar France, where it signaled new forms of power and protest.
