The American Oriental Society recently awarded its Jonas Greenfield Prize For Younger Semitists to Aaron Tugendhaft for his article “How to Become a Brother in the Bronze Age: An Inquiry into the Representation of Politics in Ugaritic Myth,” published in the journal Fragments. The prize is awarded every three years to a scholar under forty for the best article in any area of Semitic studies that has been published in the past two years. In awarding the prize, the selection committee made note of the “serious philological competence and scholarly erudition” demonstrated in the work.
Aaron’s article appeared in volume two of Fragments, an interdisciplinary journal for the study of the pre-modern world. As is the case with many of our journals, the full text of the article is available online as open access scholarly content licensed via Creative Commons. Congratulations to Aaron and to the editors of Fragments!
