Jewish Studies in Berlin

Leo Baeck Summer University in Berlin, Germany


Leo Baeck Summer University: The Leo Baeck Summer University aims at doctoral students from all disciplines, who deal with aspects of Jewish Berlin in their dissertations. The focus will be on applying theoretical approaches and research results to the fields of Jewish history, literature, and culture in Berlin. Along with intensive workshops, the participating students are required to present and discuss their own research projects. The final program will be developed in accordance with the participants’ research topics. Guest lecturers will address and analyze them in one-day workshops. The summer school will be conducted in English.

The Leo Baeck Summer University 2019 theme on "Jewish Berlin - Past and Present" intends to lay the foundation for an international network of doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers in the interdisciplinary field of Jewish studies. Apply here!
