Land Economics Editor wins Reimer Lüst Award

Daniel Bromley

Professor and editor of Land Economics, Daniel W. Bromley has received the Reimer Lüst Award for International Scholarly and Cultural Exchange. The award is given by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation to recognize outstanding humanities scholars and social scientists who have promoted bilateral relations between Germany and their own countries.


Bromley, an emeritus professor of agricultural and applied economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, found out about the award, fittingly, in November while teaching at Humboldt University of Berlin.


“I was really stunned,” Bromley says.


Award winners are invited to spend up to a year in Germany and given 50,000 Euros ($74,000) to help with expenses. They also have the opportunity to conduct research projects of their choosing with specialist colleagues in Germany. The award will be given at a June ceremony hosted by the president of Germany. Only two awards are given annually.
