Congratulations to two of our MA students who have been awarded SSHRC fellowships!!
Olivia Schultz has been awarded a SSHRC fellowship in support of her MA research project entitled “Kissing Purity Goodbye? A Critical Rhetorical Analysis of Former Evangelical Purity Leader Joshua Harris, and Evangelical Response.”
Jordan Molot's SSHRC-supported MA project aims to locate sensory experience in the production of Jewish bodies by analysing archival materials and oral histories of a Jewish bathhouse in the Plateau neighbourhood of Montréal. He is particularly interested in contrasting bodily discourses in early Jewish studies with feelings of heat, sweat, water, and desire within this space. Congratulations to both of these outstanding students!!
