The fall edition of Brandeis Magazine is here

Go back to college with the Fall issue of Brandeis Magazine.

The Fall 2017 cover of Brandeis Magazine

In this latest edition of the magazine, find out what happens when sworn enemies become business partners. How a young Ghanaian alumna is crushing a negative stereotype about African women (hint: it involves sisterhood, sex and empowerment). How Turing Award winner Leslie Lamport, MA’63, PhD’72, H’17, developed the fundamental concepts of 21st-century computing.

The cover story looks inside Our Generation Speaks, a novel Brandeis fellowship program and incubator that brings together young Israeli and Palestinian entrepreneurs to create joint startups in the Middle East — an enterprising idea that could sow seeds of peace in the region.

Many more stories explore the lives, pursuits and ideas of fascinating Brandeisians, on campus and around the world. Meet NPR’s host extraordinaire, Guy Raz ’96, the first person to have three shows in the iTunes podcast chart’s Top 20 at the same time. Read about associate professor Eugene Sheppard’s illuminating research into the little-known ties between the Spanish Inquisition and the rise of Nazism.

As always, catch up with friends and classmates in Class Notes, and peruse “On the Bookshelf” to keep abreast of what faculty and alumni are writing. Stay informed about recent university happenings, including news of Brandeis’ single largest gift ever — $50 million for scholarships.

The Fall edition is available online and in print.
