Amsterdam was the centre of Jewish printing in Europe from 1650 to 1800. The central question to be tackled in the Seminar will be the role of books in the lives of authors and readers, highlighting the texts which were significant for Jewish readers as well as the books which are important for study of Jewish cultural and intellectual history in this period.
Weekly seminars will be convened through the duration of two Oxford terms, 19 January to 13 March and
27 April to 19 June 2015. These will offer a forum for the fellows to address central research topics related to the overall theme of the Seminar.
Visiting Fellows will receive free accommodation provided by the Centre and a stipend of 750 pounds sterling (pro rata) per calendar month during the period of their tenure. Travelling expenses up to 500 pounds sterling will also be provided.
Applications by senior scholars, and by scholars at postdoctoral and advanced doctoral level, are all welcome.
