The Program in Judaic Studies announces the $500 Undergraduate Essay Prize.
The award will go to the best academic essay written by a current Brown University undergraduate (regardless of concentration) on any topic relating to Jews and Judaism. Papers that use interdisciplinary approaches are especially encouraged.
The Program in Judaic Studies aims to promote and support the study of Jews and Judaism across Brown University. To that end, we announce research grants for Brown undergraduate and graduate students working in related fields. Funds may be used in a wide variety of ways, including acquisition of research materials, traveling to research sites, expenses related to presenting a paper at a conference, etc. Preference will be given to those who have taken courses in or who plan to work with an adviser in the Program in Judaic Studies.
The Program in Judaic Studies is pleased to announce that Professor Paul Nahme, Dorot Assistant Professor of Judaic Studies and Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, was named as a finalist in the National Jewish book award in the Modern Jewish Thought category for his novel entitled "Hermann Cohen and the Crisis of Liberalism" (Indiana University Press).
