The American Studies Association of the United States awarded the 2013 Carl Bode-Norman Holmes Pearson Prize for Outstanding Contributions to American Studies to Professor Alfred Hornung. He is only the second non-American to win the prize since its inception. The Bode-Pearson Prize, established in 1975, is one of the oldest and most prestigious awards in American Studies.

The prize is awarded to an individual for a lifetime of achievement and service within the field of American Studies. Former recipients of the Prize include Donald Pease (Dartmouth College), Janice Radway (Northwestern University), Sacvan Bercovitch (Harvard University), Henry Nash Smith (University of California in Berkeley) and the Mexican American author and critic Gloria Anzaldúa. Professor Hornung received the Prize on November 22, 2013, in Washington, D.C.
