English PEN is delighted to announce the judges for the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize 2023: author and academic Dan Hicks (Chair of Judges) will be joined by environmental humanities scholar and art historian Sria Chatterjee, and artistic director of the Migration Museum Aditi Anand to judge this year’s PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize.
The PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize is awarded annually for a non-fiction book of specifically historical content – that is, not primarily written for the academic market – and can cover all historical periods. Marjorie Hessell-Tiltman was a member of PEN during the 1960s and 1970s. On her death in 1999, she bequeathed £100,000 to English PEN.
Last year’s PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize was awarded to Francesca Stavrakopoulou for God: An Anatomy (Picador).
The PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize 2023 shortlist will be announced in October 2023.
