June 28, 2012
The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI) selected Aislinn Betancourt '12 for its nationally recognized Summer Internship. Betancourt, a 2012 Fulbright Scholar, will complete an independent research project as part of her internship work on the variation and evolution of women’s reproductive choice throughout all branches of Judaism. Additionally, she will assist Joyce Antler, Samuel B. Lane Professor of American Jewish History and Culture and Women's and Gender Studies at Brandeis University, with the writing of a book on Jewish involvement in the radical feminist movement of the 1960s.
The HBI was established at Brandeis University in 1997 with a generous grant from Hadassah. Its internship program provides interns a variety of opportunities to learn about the work of Jewish women's studies scholars and centers, and try their hand at research in the field.
