Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization at Northwestern

HEFNU's Summer Institute is held annually on the Evanston campus of Northwestern University. The Summer Institute is an intensive two-week residential course aimed to broaden and deepen participants' background in Holocaust studies. HEFNU welcomes 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. We welcome participants from a wide variety of disciplines and all intellectual fields related to Holocaust Studies.

Twenty-five Fellows are selected, each of whom receives free room, board, and tuition. Fellowships do not cover travel expenses to and from Evanston. 

The Institute is taught by leading scholars in the field of Holocaust studies and includes themes such as Holocaust history and historiography; the Holocaust in literature and film; Gender; Jewish History and Civilization; and Holocaust Memory.
