With the generous support of a Global Experiential Learning and Teaching (GELT) Grant from the Office of Global Engagement and additional funds provided by the Program in Judaic Studies, the twelve Brown juniors and seniors in my seminar, “The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Contested Narratives,” spent seven days beginning shortly before Spring Break touring the land both peoples claim to be their own and hearing a wide range of Palestinian and Israeli voices expressing their understanding of the history of the conflict and the hopes and
"Tour of Jewish Poland - Past, Present, and Future" - a collaboration between Brown RISD Hillel, Professor Adam Teller (Associate Professor of Judaic Studies and History), and the Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland Foundation. The trip is a highly-subsidized opportunity to explore Jewish life in Poland with classmates from College Hill over spring break.
The Program in Judaic Studies is now accepting applications for the Undergraduate Essay Prize in Judaic Studies. The award will go to the best academic essay written by a current Brown University undergraduate (regardless of concentration) on any topic relating to Jews and Judaism. Papers that use interdisciplinary approaches are especially encouraged. Submissions can include (but are not limited to) a paper used in a course (revised or not), original research, or a thesis chapter that can stand on its own.
The Program in Judaic Studies aims to promote and support the study of Jews and Judaism across Brown. To that end, we announce research grants for Brown undergraduate and graduate students working in related fields. Funds may be used in a wide variety of ways, including acquisition of research materials, traveling to research sites, etc. Preference will be given to those who have taken courses in or who plan to work with an adviser in the Program in Judaic Studies. Grant proposals can be for as little as $250 but should not exceed $1000.
