The Stotsky Professor in Jewish Historical and Cultural Studies was established at Northeastern University in 1991 as a result of a generous gift from Dr. Bernard A. Stotsky.

The professorship is intended to support a faculty member who pursues research on broad ethical, cultural, and social issues arising out of the suffering and heroism of the Holocaust, as well as to encourage new approaches to the problem of social justice and modern Judaism.

Previous holders of the Stotsky Professorship include Professor Inez Hedges, Professor Joshua R. Jacobson, Professor Laurel Leff, Professor William F.S. Miles, Professor James Rodman Ross, and Professor Dov Waxman.
