CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR 2016/17


Go here for more details
 
The European Association for Jewish Studies invites submissions of event proposals for the academic year 2016/17 in the framework of the EAJS Programme in European Jewish Studies, generously funded by the Stiftung "Erinnerung, Verantwortung, Zukunft" (Berlin). The purpose of the programme, now in its second of three years, is twofold:
  • to foster cooperation among scholars involved in Jewish Studies across Europe, and
  • to support early career researchers in this field to develop a professional network.
The programme offers funding of up to € 8,000 for each event for travel expenses, accommodation and maintenance of the active participants.

Academic excellence, the impact on network building in Jewish Studies across Europe and international cooperation in the development of proposals will be key criteria. Applicants are encouraged to submit multi-disciplinary proposals.

The main applicant is required to be a full member of the EAJS, and associate or student members are eligible to function as further applicants. Speakers are not required to be members of the EAJS.

For more details and to apply, go to the EAJS website here.
