Sharon Feiman-Nemser Celebration

Sharon Feiman-NemserIn October 2020 people joined us from far and near to toast Sharon as she transitioned to emerita status. Friends, former students, colleagues, and family members assembled on Zoom for a two session symposium followed by a reception to celebrate her achievements and accomplishments as a scholar, mentor and role model for so many. While we were sorry that we could not be together in person, the gathering was nevertheless a fitting tribute to the Mandel Center's founding director.

In the first session, we invited five panelists to share an article that represents one of Sharon's key scholarly contributions:
