Michael Brenner wins the first Baron Award for Scholarly Excellence.
The Knapp Family Foundation and the University of Vienna are delighted to announce the establishment of the Salo W. and Jeannette M. Baron Award for Scholarly Excellence in Research on the Jewish Experience. The Baron Award will be presented biannually to a recognized scholar for a body of work. Awards will also be presented to two graduate students for an individual work representing the highest scholarly achievement. These prestigious awards may well be described as a "Nobel Prize" in the study of the Jewish experience.
