Aimee Hannoush, a New Jersey native, graduated from Princeton University in 2023 with a Bachelor of Arts in History. Her independent projects focused on biblical women in the mimre of Jacob of Sarug and the Eucharist in Ephrem’s madroshe. She hopes to pursue further Semitic language study and increase accessibility to these authors through translation. She is also interested in patristics, liturgy, and sacred music, especially Syriac chants. At Notre Dame, she is looking forward to studying early Middle Eastern Christianity, working with wonderful professors and fellow students, and enjoying the snow.
