The Association for Israel Studies has recognized Alan Dowty, a professor emeritus in Notre Dame’s Department of Political Science, with an AIS-Israel Institute Lifetime Achievement Award for his “lasting and path-breaking contributions” that have significantly shaped the field of Israel studies.
Dowty, a past president of the AIS, will receive the award at the association’s 2017 annual meeting at Brandeis University on June 12.
“This award — the only lifetime achievement award in my field — represents recognition by those most familiar with my work, and for that reason, it is extremely gratifying,” Dowty said. “Recognition by colleagues is always valuable, and awards of this kind give some confidence that efforts expended over the decades were not in vain.”
