The Vienna Jewish Studies Colloquium (VJSC) is an informal forum for Jewish Studies scholars in Vienna and its environs to come together, share their research-in-progress and exchange ideas. On November 7-8, 2022, we are hosting our first Graduate Student Workshop, which aims to bring together PhD students in the wider region who are working on Jewish-Studies-related topics. Participants will have an opportunity to present their dissertation projects to fellow students and get feedback from leading scholars in the field. The presentations should focus, in particular, on conceptual and methodological issues related to the primary sources used in the dissertation. Applicants are welcome from all academic disciplines, so long as their research engages substantially with themes that touch upon Jewish history, society, culture and literature.
There will be a limitation of 15-20 participants. To apply, please submit (1) a cover letter, (2) a C.V., and (3) a brief abstract by July 3, 2022.
We can cover travel expenses in Europe (train or bus) and 1 night of accommodation, if necessary.
