Professor Miriam Bodian was elected to the American Academy of Jewish Research, the oldest organization of Judaic scholars in North America.
AAJR fellows, who are nominated and elected by their peers, comprise "the most distinguished and most senior scholars teaching Judaic studies at American universities," according to the organization's website.
Professor Bodian, a core member of the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies faculty, teaches in the departments of history and religious studies, as well as in the Center for European Studies. She is the author of two books: Dying in the Law of Moses: Crypto-Jewish Martyrdom in the Iberian World (Indiana University Press, 2007) and Hebrews of the Portuguese Nation: Conversos and Community in Early Modern Amsterdam (Indiana University Press, 1997). The latter won the National Book Award in history, and also the first annual Koret Jewish Book Award in history.
