2017 Nancy Baym Book Award

The Nancy Baym book award committee are delighted to announce the 2017 winner. The award goes to Nicholas John for his book ‘The Age of Sharing’. The competition was especially hard this year, with many exceptional books submitted, making our job really difficult. Acknowledging this, the committee would like to specifically mention two books, whose innovative approach, originality and breadth of scholarship make them stand out: Helen Kennedy’s Post, Mine, Repeat, and Holly Kruse’s Off-Track and Online.
