Ilse Lazaroms wins Fellowship at Centre for Jewish History
Ilse Lazaroms has been awarded a prestigious Prins Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship (2015-2016) at the Centre for Jewish History in New York City. The Centre is home to the world’s largest archive of the modern Jewish experience outside of Israel and houses collections which span 700 years.
Lazaroms received her PhD from the European University Institute (EUI) in 2010 and is the author of the award-winning The Grace of Misery: Joseph Roth and the Politics of Exile, 1919-1939 and the co-editor of a volume on biographical approaches to modern European history.
Lazaroms will use her second year in this position to conduct original research around the response of Hungarian-speaking Jewry to anti-Jewish violence and emigration at the turn of the twentieth century for a period of ten months.
Now in its 14th year, the Centre’s Fellowship program offers financial support to humanities scholars across different stages of their careers. Scholars use the Centre’s resources to produce scholarship that adds to historical knowledge and advances the field of Jewish Studies.
