It is with great sadness that the Institute for Research in the Humanities notes the passing of one of its former senior fellows, Rachel Brenner (1946-2021). Rachel, a long-time member of the Department of Hebrew and Semitic Studies and the Center for Jewish Studies, was a major scholar of modern Hebrew literature, and a beloved teacher of UW-Madison students for many years. She was a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Research in the Humanities from 2008 to 2013.
