The department is proud to congratulate PhD candidate Sarah Zaides on being named a 2015-16 Charlotte W. Newcombe Fellow for her dissertation project "Tevye's Ottoman Daughter: Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews in the Shatterzones of Empires, 1882-1923."

The Charlotte W. Newcombe Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship in Religion & Ethics, granted by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, supports original and significant study of ethical and religious values, and is one of the most selective and prestigious national awards for doctoral reserach. This year Sarah was one of only 22 recipients of the fellowship, across the entire country and all the disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

Great job Sarah!
