PhD Students in European-Jewish History

Max and Hilde Kochmann Summer School for PhD Students in European- Jewish History and Culture

Veranstalter: Centre for German-Jewish Studies, University of Sussex,
Falmer, BN1 9QN, United Kingdom Brighton, UK
Datum, Ort: 13.07.2010-16.07.2010, Brighton, UK
Deadline: 31.03.2010

Applications are invited for a workshop for PhD students in European Jewish History and Culture organised by the Centre for German-Jewish Studies (CGJS) at the University of Sussex (www.sussex.ac.uk/cgjs/) that will take place from July 13-16, 2010 in Brighton, UK. The purpose of the workshop that began last year and is planned also for the following years, is to create an interdisciplinary network of younger scholars engaged in any area of European Jewish history, thought, and culture from the early modern to modern periods. This year's focus will be on modern and contemporary Jewish history. Participants will be given the opportunity to present and discuss their projects in an informal and welcoming atmosphere with leading scholars in the field.

Participating faculty in 2010 will be Prof. Dr. Stefanie Schüler- Springorum (Institute for the History of German Jewry, Hamburg), Prof. Dr. Christhard Hoffmann (University of Bergen) and Prof. Dr. Christian Wiese (University of Sussex).

This year we particularly invite applications of students working on projects outside the area of German-Jewish history. A separate call for papers inviting applications for projects devoted to German Jewry will be published for a workshop organised by the Wissenschaftliche Arbeitsgemeinschaft des Leo Baeck Instituts. Both workshops will take place at the same time at the University of Sussex, thus enabling a dialogue between students in German Jewish and European Jewish history and culture.

Travel expenses, accommodation and meals for the Max and Hilde Kochmann Summer School will be paid for by the CGJS. Students from Central and Eastern Europe are especially encouraged to apply; individual candidates from Israel and the United States will also be considered, but may be asked to contribute towards their flight costs.

Candidates should send (by email) a 3-5-page proposal outlining their PhD project, a c.v. and one letter of recommendation (by the supervisor or any other relevant scholar with expertise on their topic) by 31 March 2010 to:
