Farewell to Professor Philip Alexander

14 12 2010

Professor Philip Alexander, the inspirational Director of the AHRC Rylands Cairo Genizah Project (2003-2009), will retire at the beginning of 2011.

As Professor of Post-Biblical Jewish Literature and Co-director of the Centre for Jewish Studies here at the University of Manchester, he has expressed his satisfaction about the effective collaboration with the Special Collections department of the John Rylands University Library on more than one occasion, and we know that he’s very proud of the achievements of the Project.  The recently awarded ‘outstanding’ grade is a fitting farewell.

Enjoy your thoroughly deserved freedom, Philip – we miss our cheerful weekly meetings during the Project, but know we’ll stay in touch!
