Joelle E. Jackson (Indiana University Bloomington) receives the 2022 William A. Wilson prize.
The William A. Wilson Prize, awarded by the Folk Belief and Religious Folklife Section, is given to recognize an outstanding paper submitted by an undergraduate student on a topic in religious folklife or folk belief, broadly construed.
Jackson’s article “Repairing Our World: Jewish Environmentalism through Text, Tradition, and Activism,” was judged to be the best paper submitted by an undergraduate student. The committee noted that the article nicely wove together interviews with scholars, firsthand experiences, with contextual information.
Read Jackson’s paper, which was published in Smithsonian’s Folklife magazine.
