Announcing the New 2024-25 fellows

THE KATZ CENTER is delighted to announce the incoming cohort of international fellows for the 2024–25 fellowship year devoted to new research at the intersection of Jewish studies and medicine, broadly conceived. The cohort is made of scholars working on a fascinatingly diverse set of projects that intersect where questions of the Jewish body, illness and health converge. Through the lens of medicine and health, these projects open new vistas into questions of gender, histories of institutions, science and religion, life and death, sociology and politics.
