Prof. Miriam Bodian
Miriam Bodian has just been elected to the American Academy of Jewish Research. The Academy represents the oldest organization of Judaic scholars in North America. Fellows are nominated and elected by their peers and thus constitute the most distinguished and most senior scholars teaching Judaic studies at American universities.
Bodian, a Professor of History with affiliations in the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies, Religious Studies, and European Studies, 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.
