Introducing the Winter Edition of Brandeis Magazine

January 29, 2020

The Winter issue of Brandeis Magazine is now available online and in print.

Read about professor Dorothy Kim’s efforts to reclaim the Middle Ages from extremists who have perverted its history and iconography for political ends in “Jousting with the Alt-Right.”

Meet actor Robin Weigert ’91, whose roles are as diverse as the unflappable Dr. Reisman in “Big Little Lies” and the indelicate Calamity Jane in “Deadwood,” in a probing profile, “A Magical Vanishing Act.”

Discover how the 2018 massacre at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue brought together people of all faiths to help the city’s Jewish community rebuild in “Healing Roots.”

In the Impact section, read about the creation of the Henri Lazarof Living Legacy which honors the late prolific composer Henri Lazarof, MFA’59. Learn about Brandeis' new vice president of development, Hannah Peters.

In the Imprint section, read about the Brandeis National Committee's latest campaign which will support the digitization of fascinating library collections.

And, of course, peruse Class Notes to discover what your friends and classmates have been up to, as well as read profiles of four Brandeis alumnae who are making a major impact in their respective fields: Candace Browning ’77, Risa Levine ’83, Jill Maderer ’96 and Chen Yahav-Levanon ’06.
