US-Israeli Winter Program Sponsored Faculty FellowshipWednesday, Dec 21, 2022
Mara Schiff, Ph.D., has been named a sponsored faculty fellow in the Faculty Fellowship Program supported by Media Watch International and the Jewish National Fund. The program is designed for academics to share scholarly research, build international collaboration, and explore Israeli culture. Participants will travel throughout Israel during the winter break, meeting Israeli professors from their respective disciplines and with the same, or similar, research interests – all with the goal of developing collaborations, research projects, co-authoring articles, and establishing exchange programs between faculty and students.
Furthermore, Schiff was invited this past summer to chair a plenary session at the European Forum of Restorative Justice (EFRJ) on “The Political Purposes of Restorative Justice Movements,” in Sassari, Italy, and was sponsored as a faculty fellow of the Maynooth Summer Institute in Restorative Justice and Design Innovation in Dublin.
