Congratulation to Daniel Herskowitz (DPhil 2019), Stipendiary Career Research Fellow in Jewish Studies at Wolfson College, University of Oxford.

He was awarded the Salo W. and Jeannette M. Baron Young Scholar Award for Scholarly Excellence in Research of the Jewish Experience by the University of Vienna, after a selection which saw more than 200 applications. 

In Vienna, Dr. Herskowitz will conduct research on The Maimonides Renaissance In Interwar Germany, which offers an innovative analysis of the unexplored ‘Maimonides Renaissance’ that took place during the interwar period in Germany, and argues for its importance for the reception history of Maimonides as well as for our understanding of the Jewish experience during this momentous time in Jewish history.
