Christine Shepardson, assistant professor of Early Christianity in the Department of Religious Studies, has had a particularly prolific year, with articles appearing in three of the top journals in her field, and culminating with last month’s release of her first book, Anti-Judaism and Christian Orthodoxy: Ephrem’s Hymns in Fourth-Century Syria. She is also a 2008 recipient of a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipend and a Franklin Research Grant from the American Philosophical Society, which allowed her to continue her current research in southern Turkey this past summer.
