Professor Susan Einbinder was recently elected to the AAJR (American Academy of Jewish Research). Susan's scholarship on medieval Jewish and European history and culture is widely recognized for its path-breaking contributions to the study of Jewish-Christian and Jewish-Muslim relations in the medieval period. Over the last two years, her scholarship on the Black Death and religious responses to pandemic and plague has attracted global interest and attention. Susan's newest book, Writing Plague: Jewish Responses to the Great Italian Plague, will be published by the University of Pennsylvania Press later this year. She has been the recipient of many prestigious awards and fellowships, including a Guggenheim, a fellowship from the Center for Advanced Studies at Princeton, and the National Humanities Center.
