Sara Milstein Receives Killam Accelerator Research Fellowship

The Department congratulates Dr. Sara Milstein on receiving an inaugural UBC Killam Accelerator Research Fellowship! She is one of six faculty at UBC to receive the two-year fellowship. These awards recognize exceptional early-career researchers at UBC who have demonstrated outstanding research achievement and the potential for significant impact in their fields of scholarship.

Dr. Milstein’s project is called “Lost in Translation: Gender, Ambiguity and Biblical ‘Errancy'” and consists of three parts: 1) a general audience book that will be comprised of a series of personal essays on the “top ten” most problematic biblical texts and terms from a modern point of view; 2) a podcast series; and 3) a series of op-eds for newspaper and online sites.
