Dr. Ellen Haskell

Dr. Ellen Haskell (Religious Studies) received funding from the American Association of University Women for the book-length manuscript project “The Zohar as Text in Context: Jewish Mystical Reflections on the History, Literature and Culture of Thirteenth-Century Spain”. The project interprets the thirteenth-century Jewish mystical classic Sefer ha-Zohar (The Book of Splendor) as cultural commentary to illuminate how the medieval mystics who composed this collaborative work understood the historical events, religious challenges, and socio-cultural transformations of their time, according to the abstract.
