The 19th Annual Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization
The Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University
(Evanston, Illinois, June 22 to July 3, 2014)
Call for Fellows
The Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University is pleased to invite applications for fellowships to participate in the nineteenth annual Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization from June 22 to July 3, 2014, at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. The renowned program is an intensive two-week course of study designed to broaden and deepen the background of current and prospective Holocaust educators. It is open to faculty at the college or university level and to graduate students who are planning on teaching Holocaust-related courses. The Institute is ideal for those with a knowledge of one disciplinary approach to the Holocaust but who are looking to broaden their interdisciplinary perspective. Approximately 25 Fellows are selected annually, each of whom receives free room, board, and tuition during the program. (Fellowships do not cover travel expenses to and from Evanston or the cost of assigned books. It is generally not possible to accommodate spouses or partners on campus during the Institute).
The Institute curriculum consists of seminars and lectures taught by leading scholars on the following themes: the religious practice and history of European Jewry, problems in Holocaust interpretation, the Holocaust in literature, art and film, the Holocaust and modern ethics, gender and the Holocaust, and the pedagogy of the Holocaust. Faculty for the 2014 Summer Institute will include Professors Doris Bergen, Alan Berger, Roger Brooks, Gershon Greenberg, Dagmar Herzog, Paul Jaskot, Stuart Liebman, and Barry Trachtenberg.
By February 28, 2014, applicants should submit electronically (1) a letter explaining their interest and experience in Holocaust studies, (2) a curriculum vitae, and, (3) in the case of graduate students, a letter of recommendation from the principal dissertation advisor. Applications and letters of recommendation should be emailed (separately) with the subject line "Summer Institute 2014" to: email@example.com
