Natalie Zemon Davis

Davis in 2010 Natalie Zemon Davis, (November 8, 1928 – October 21, 2023) was an American-Canadian historian of the early modern period. She was the Henry Charles Lea Professor of History at Princeton University. Her work originally focused on France, but it later broadened to include other parts of Europe, North America, and the Caribbean.

(By 2023, the text had appeared in six translations.) Davis' books have all been translated into other languages: twenty-two for ''The Return of Martin Guerre.'' She was the second female president of the American Historical Association (the first, Nellie Neilson, was in 1943).

Davis was awarded the Holberg International Memorial Prize and National Humanities Medal and was named Companion of the Order of Canada. Provided by Wikipedia
