Jewish Culture and Society

Michael L. Satlow is Professor of Judaic and Religious Studies at Brown University. He will deliver the Goldberg Lecture, which focuses on Judaism and its impact on national and transnational cultures and thought.

Professor Satlow (Ph.D. in Ancient Judaism from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America) specializes in the history of Jews and Judaism in antiquity but also writes and teaches more broadly. His most recent authored book is How the Bible Became Holy and has recently edited two volumes, Judaism and the Economy: A Sourcebook and Strength to Strength: Essays in Honor of Shaye J. D. Cohen.  He is the Managing Editor for Brown Judaic Studies and has held fellowships from the NEH, ACLS, John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, and the Fulbright program among others.  He also directs several digital projects, including Inscriptions of Israel/Palestine.
