Fellner Awards to Honor Best Articles in BAR and Bible Review
Four distinguished judges have been selected for the fourth annual Fellner Awards. Sponsored by the Leopold and Clara M. Fellner Charitable Foundation, the awards honor the best two articles in BAR and in its companion magazine Bible Review in 1990. First-prize winners will each receive $500; runners-up will receive $250 apiece.
The judges for BAR are Norma Kershaw, now retired from the art history department at Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York, and John C. H. Laughlin, professor of religion at Averett College, Danville, Virginia. The judges for Bible Review will be announced in the June issue of Bible Review.
Kershaw serves on the governing boards of the American Schools of Oriental Research and the Archaeological Institute of America and on the editorial advisory board of BAR. She has excavated at Gezer and Aphek, in Israel, and at Salamis, in Cyprus.
Laughlin’s experience as a staff archaeologist at Tel Dan (1978–1980) led to his BAR article, “The Remarkable Discoveries at Tel Dan,” BAR 07:05. He served as area supervisor at Capernaum from 1981 through 1986. He is currently excavating at Banias (Caesarea Philippi) in northern Galilee.
