The Center for Jewish Studies is inviting applications for the 2018 Best Student Paper in Jewish Studies award. Did you write a good paper on the architecture of synagogues? Remember that work you did on Jewish hip-hop? Or that A-paper on Kafka that you wrote last year? From urban planning to philosophy, from music to religion, from literature to anthropology, students at Wesleyan are working on various Jewish topics using diverse methodologies. This new award is meant to showcase the excellent work being done by students in all fields of Jewish Studies broadly understood. Regardless of your major or minor, the participation is open to all students.
A committee of faculty members will select the best essay.
- The paper should be on a Jewish topic (pretty obvious, right?)
- The paper has been awarded a grade of B+ or higher.
- For the 2018 Award, we accept submissions of papers from the years 2016-2017.
- Yes, you are welcome to revise your paper based on your professor’s comments, but please keep it to the standard final paper length.
Deadline: the deadline for submission is March 9, 2018. Results will be notified in April.
Question? Feel free to contact Prof. Yaniv Feller (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please email your paper to Sheri Dursin at email@example.com, indicating “Jewish Studies Award Submission” in the subject line.
