About the Institute

The London Summer Institute, organized by Royal Holloway, University of London with the support of the Pears Foundation and HEFNU, is held biennially since 2012. This programme is an intensive 10-day residential course designed to broaden and deepen the background of postgraduates in Holocaust studies, early career academics, and educators in relevant fields. It is open to full- or part-time PhD students (particularly those in their final year of study), full- or part-time academic staff, and educators at recognised institutions such as museums and archives.

Nineteen Fellows are selected, each of whom receives free room, board, and tuition during the programme (Fellowships do not, however, cover travel expenses to and from the applicant’s home or institutional address to the UK and/or Egham). We seek Fellows from a wide variety of disciplines and all intellectual fields related to Holocaust Studies.

The Institute curriculum consists of courses, lectures, and seminars taught by leading scholars on themes such as Holocaust history and historiography; the Holocaust in literature and film; and the Holocaust and modern thought. In addition, the Institute offers a rich programme of guest lectures on special topics and field trips to museums, archives, and cultural sites in London.
