The officers of the International Society for Heresy Studies wish to share some exciting news with our colleagues. ISHS Founding Member and current Board Member, Rebecca N. Goldstein, was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Obama in September. Per the National Endowment for the Humanities website, Goldstein received the award for
bringing philosophy into conversation with culture. In scholarship, Dr. Goldstein has elucidated the ideas of Spinoza and Gödel, while in fiction, she deploys wit and drama to help us understand the great human conflict between thought and feeling.
We ask the ISHS community to join us in congratulating Goldstein on this well-deserved honor.
