The 2022 Fritz Stern Dissertation Prize will be awarded to Tamar Menashe (University of Pennsylvania) for her work on “The Imperial Supreme Court and Jews in Cross-Confessional Legal Cultures in Germany, 1495-1960” (Columbia University, 2022). In her presentation, Dr. Menashe will provide insights into her research.
