AJS Distinguished Lectureship Program

The AJS Distinguished Lectureship Program connects you with distinguished lecturers in the field of Jewish studies. Enrich your next program with one of over 300 lectures, which cover the breadth of Jewish history, religion, politics, and culture.

How does the Distinguished Lectureship Program Work?

Each scholar gives one lecture per year for the Lectureship Program and donates the lecture fee to the AJS. Sponsors of a lecture provided by the AJS Distinguished Lectureship Program pay the lecture fee directly to AJS and cover the lecturer’s travel and lodging expenses. The fee covers a 90-120 minute presentation, which includes a question and answer session. Any further requests made of the speaker (e.g. for class visits, other talks, etc.) should be covered by an additional honorarium paid directly by the host institution to the speaker and will be theirs to keep.

Many speakers are booked a year or more in advance, so in order to engage the Lecturer you want, please contact dlp@associationforjewishstudies.org as far in advance as you are able.

New for 2018! Travel Subsidies!

Preference will be given to organizations hosting for the first time, but all organizations can apply. For more information, please contact dlp@associationforjewishstudies.org

Travel subsidies are generously sponsored by Jordan Schnitzer and Arlene Schnitzer through the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer Family Fund of the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation.
