With the support of the Graduate School, the Center for Judaic Studies has awarded Center Graduate Assistant Adane Zawdu a predoctoral fellowship for his summer research. Congratulations, Adane!

Adane, who teaches Ethiopian Jews in Ethiopia and Israel, was awarded the fellowship in recognition of his excellent work in Judaic Studies this year.  For the second consecutive year, Adane organized a panel discussion at UConn for students in his class to present their final papers. The theme of the 2018 Borderlands Graduate Symposium was “Cartographies of the Body: Subversions, Surveillance, Crossings.”
