Bahat Prize, 2011

Published by Editor at 11:55 am under University News

The winners of this year’s prestigious Bahat Prize, awarded by the University of Haifa Press for reference works, are Prof. Chaim Gans, Prof. Alex Tsafriri and Dr. Udi Bonstein. Their manuscripts will be co-published by the University of Haifa Press and Yedioth Books. The Bahat Prize is the biggest to be awarded in Irael for a reference work, at a total of 14,000 NIS: 100,000 NIS for a senior scholar and 40,000 NIS for a young scholar.

The Bahat Prize, named after the late Prof. Yaakov Bahat, one of the founding faculty members of the Department of Comparative Hebrew Literature at the University of Haifa, has been awarded annually since 1998 for quality, original, non-fiction manuscripts in Hebrew that have not been published previously and which have a potentially large popular audience.

This year, two senior scholars will be dividing the 100,000 NIS prize: Prof. Chaim Gans of Tel-Aviv University and the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem; and Prof. Alex Tsafriri of the Weizmann Institute of Science.

Prof. Gans’s work “Three Zionisms and Post-Zionism” (”Shalosh Tzionuyot v’Post-Tzionut“) treats the debate between the post-Zionist approach that  refutes the key Zionist story and the central Zionist approach.

Prof. Alex Tsafriri is being awarded the prize for his work “Man as Animal?” (”Ha-Adam K-Haya?“) that discusses the public debate on animal experimentation based on biomedical research in the West and in Israel.

Dr. Udi Bonstein is receiving the Bahat Prize for a young scholar, for his manuscript entitled “Hypnosis: The Soul’s Way of Creating the Body” (”Hypnoza: Darkah shel Ha-Nefesh Litzor et Ha-Guf“), which examines one of the human brain’s most fascinating capacity: hypnosis.
