IU professor Alvin Rosenfeld has been named a senior fellow at the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights, a Montreal-based international consortium of government officials, scholars, jurists, students and others united to pursue justice.
Rosenfeld is founding director of the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism at IU, the only research center at a U.S. university dedicated to understanding and combating contemporary antisemitism. A widely respected scholar of the Holocaust, he is also the Irving M. Glazer Chair in IU's Borns Jewish Studies Program and a professor of English.
Senior fellows at the center are leading thinkers and advocates chosen for their contributions to the struggle for peace and justice. They seek to mobilize a constituency of conscience to defend democracy, human rights and protection of the most vulnerable.
