Brown University's Maud Mandel has been named fellow with American Academy for Jewish Research.
Mandel is Brown's Dean of the College.
“The American Academy of Jewish Research represents some of the most respected scholars in the field of Jewish studies," Mandel said. "It’s an inspiring group, and it’s a tremendous honor to be selected to become one of them. I didn’t even know I had been in the running, so I was taken by surprise — in a very good way.”
