Natan Meir, Judaic Studies faculty, was chosen by YIVO Institute for Jewish Research New York City as the recipient of this year’s Professor Bernard Choseed Memorial Fellowship. The fellowship supports advanced research in East European Jewish Studies and carries a stipend of $7,500, providing for a period of one to three months of research at the YIVO Library and Archives and a public lecture by the holder. Meir will use the fellowship to do research for his project on “Marginal Jews in East European Jewish Society,” which investigates groups such as orphans, the physically disabled, the mentally ill, and the destitute, from three angles: communal and societal attitudes, the everyday lives of marginal Jews, and cultural discourse.
