Olivia Remie Constable Fund

Olivia Remie Constable Fund Details » Donate Online

We invite you to join in establishing the Olivia Remie Constable Fund which will endow an annual research award for junior, adjunct and unaffiliated scholars in memory of our dear friend and colleague who died in the prime of her life and distinguished career in April, 2014.

Remie was the director of the Medieval Institute at University of Notre Dame and a Fellow of the Medieval Academy. A scholar and teacher specializing in the fields of interactions between medieval Christians, Muslims and Jews; the Mediterranean world; economic and social history; the history of medieval cities and urban life; and medieval Spain, Remie held a prominent place in Medieval Studies.

Remie was a consummate scholar who was aware that gaps in funding exist for emerging scholars. The award is meant to reflect the high standards of Remie’s scholarship, but is not limited to her own specialty in the economic history of Arabic Spain, as suggested by her publications, but her broader interdisciplinary interests in Medieval Studies (as exemplified by her teaching, her leadership, and her service to the discipline).

Remie’s family agree that this award will be an appropriate and effective way to honor her memory. We look forward to announcing the first awardee at the annual meeting of the Medieval Academy at Notre Dame in March 2015.
