Subject: Reuven Tsur and the Israel Award
The Israeli Minister of Education has given the Israel Award to our colleague Reuven Tsur. This is the highest distinction an Israeli scientist, scholar, or artist may receive from the State of Israel. The award ceremony will take place at the Jerusalem theater on Independence Day (April 29), and in the presence of the President of Israel, the Prime Minister, the Minister of Education, Speaker of the Knesset, President of the High Court of Justice, and the Mayor of Jerusalem. Reuven received the prize in the category "General Literature", for his work in Literary Theory (the prize committee mentioned in its reasons his work in Cognitive Poetics and Poetic Prosody).
Reuven contributes to our list from time to time, and he has attended several of our International conferences, as well as publishing some of his fine articles (complete with sound files!) in the PsyArt journal.
Congratulations, Reuven, and well done!
--With warm regards,
