American Jewish History & the World: Third Biannual Graduate Student Workshop

Location: New York, NY 
Date(s) of Event: 10/29/2017 - 10/30/2017
Deadline for Submission: 6/15/2017

American Jewish history extends beyond the borders of the United States, particularly when thinking about migration, economic networks, and the flow of ideas and texts.
Facilitated by Professors Hasia Diner (NYU) and Tony Michels (University of Wisconsin), this workshop brings together advanced graduate students (who have achieved candidacy) to share and discuss dissertation work. Participants will present their chapter drafts, give comments on each other's work, as well as receive feedback from the Workshop conveners. Students will have the opportunity to meet with archivists and, also, discuss professional issues, ranging from publishing to the job market. Doctoral students working on topics related to American Jewish history, whether or not their primary research is in American or Jewish history, are encouraged to apply. Accepted students will be given travel stipends and accommodations if they are coming from outside of the NYC vicinity, and meals.

Applicants should send a 350-word abstract of their dissertations and a letter of recommendation from their dissertation advisors. The deadline is June 15, 2017.

Submit materials to:


The American Academy of Jewish Research; the American Jewish Archives; the American Jewish Historical Society; and the Goldstein-Goren Center for American Jewish History at New York University
