  The Annual Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization - Northwestern University

The Holocaust Educational Foundation and Northwestern University are pleased to invite applications for Fellowships to participate in the eighteenth annual Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization from June 23-July 3, 2013, in Evanston, Illinois. This 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 pursuing a Ph.D. Approximately 25 Fellows are selected annually, each of whom receives free room, board, and tuition during the program. (Fellowships do not cover, however, travel expenses to and from Evanston, as well as the cost of assigned books.). We seek fellows from a wide variety of disciplines, and encourage the participation of all intellectual areas related to Holocaust Studies.

The Institute curriculum consists of courses, lectures, and seminars taught by leading scholars on the following themes: the religious practice and history of the European Jews, problems in Holocaust interpretation, the Holocaust in literature, film and art, the Holocaust and modern thought, Sociology and the Holocaust, and the pedagogy of the Holocaust. In addition, the Institute offers a rich program of guest lectures on occasional themes and of cultural and recreational outings and events in Chicago.

Applications, consisting of a letter explaining the prospective Fellow's interest and experience in Holocaust studies, intentions for teaching the Holocaust, a curriculum vitae, and, in the case of graduate students, a letter of recommendation from the principal dissertation advisor, should be submitted by February 28 to: Prof. Paul Jaskot, Summer Institute Director, Department of the History of Art & Architecture, 2315 N. Kenmore, Suite 411, DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois 60614. For our records, please also send a copy of the application to the Holocaust Educational Foundation, c/o Zev Weiss at hef@northwestern.edu.

Fellowships will be awarded and all applicants notified by March 30, 2013.
