Comparative Literature graduate student Mandy Cohen has just been selected as the inaugural winner of the Renate Voris Fellowship Award for her dissertation in progress, titled “Here and Now: The Modernist Poetics of Do’ikayt.” The merit-based Fellowship is awarded annually to a graduate student in German or Jewish Studies or related fields in the Arts and Humanities
The judges’ citation singles out Mandy’s critical practice: “compelling close reading, with the purpose of developing conceptual claims on the basis of poetic form (rather than the other way around, ‘applying’ theory to artistic practice).”
Please join us in congratulating Mandy!
