NCS mourns the loss of Judith Bronfman

Judith Bronfman, a member of the New Chaucer Society since its founding of the New Chaucer Society and an attender of almost all of our biennial international congresses, passed away this last weekend after a battle with cancer. Her family wishes NCS to announce this to members, and would be grateful if you could pass this on to anyone who knew Professor Bronfman. If you live in the New York area and would like to attend her memorial service, it will be held on Sunday, May 15 at 3 PM at the Riverside Memorial Chapel, 180 West 76th Street (near Amsterdam Avenue).

Judith BRONFMAN earned her doctorate in English at New York University. She has taught at the School of Visual Arts and served as Director of Governmental and Community Affairs at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, the City University of New York.
