Fellner awards to honor best articles in BR and Biblical Archaeology Review
Four distinguished judges have been selected for the fourth annual Fellner Awards. Sponsored by the Leopold and Clara M. Fellner Charitable Foundation, the awards honor the best two articles in BR and in its companion magazine Biblical Archaeology Review in 1990. First-prize winners will each receive $500; runners-up will receive $250 apiece.
The judges for BR are Kent H. Richards, professor of Old Testament at the Iliff School of Theology, Denver, Colorado, and Sarah J. Tanzer, associate professor of Judaism and Christian origins at McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago, Illinois. The judges for Biblical Archaeology Review are John C. H. Laughlin, professor of religion at Averett College, Danville, Virginia, and Norma Kershaw, retired from the art history department at Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York.
Kent Richards has held numerous executive positions in the Society of Biblical Literature and at Scholars Press, where he edits the Biblical Scholarship in North America series. He is currently writing books on Hebrew poetry and on Ezra and Nehemiah.
Sarah Tanzer received a Ph.D. with highest honors in the study of religion from Harvard University in 1987. Her book The Sages of Qumran will soon be published in the Harvard Semitic Museum Monograph series by Scholars Press.
