The Tenth Annual Summer Institute
on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208
The Holocaust Educational Foundation and Northwestern University are pleased to invite applications for Fellowships to participate in the tenth annual Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization from June 19 to July 1, 2005 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 current faculty at the college or university level and to advanced graduate students. Approximately 25 Fellows are selected annually, each of whom receives free room, board, and tuition during the program. (Fellowships do not, however, cover travel expenses to and from Evanston, as well as 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 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 and film, the Holocaust and modern thought, 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.
Applications, consisting of a letter explaining the prospective Fellow’s interest and experience in Holocaust studies, a curriculum vitae, and, in the case of graduate students, a letter of recommendation from the principal dissertation advisor, should be submitted by January 31 to: Prof. Peter Hayes (contact information provided below).
Fellowships will be awarded and all applicants notified by March 15, 2005.
