Freedman_520x468Dr. Jeffrey Freedman, professor of history at Yeshiva College, received a fellowship from the Center for Advanced Study of the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany. The fellowship included a generous stipend to support his current research project on the history of fear in Enlightenment Europe.

This research follows from work he has previously done in his books A Poisoned Chalice (2002) and The Dangers Within: Fear in Enlightenment France (in progress). β€œI have a particular interest,” he explained, β€œin the French- and German-speaking worlds, especially the history of the book and its transnational circulation, the history of emotions and their relationship to Enlightenment philosophy and the historical roots of democratic political culture.”
