The Holocaust Education Foundation sponsors every summer a two-week faculty and advanced graduate student workshop at Northwestern University on an interdisciplinary presentation of Holocaust and Jewish history. I would greatly appreciate it if those of you who are increasingly teaching the Holocaust and/or postwar issues of memory in your classes would consider applying for this great opportunity. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for considering it, or passing it on to a colleague who you think might be interested We have begun receiving applications, and I note that the deadline of February 25 is fast approaching! Yours, Paul Jaskot Director, Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization ------------------------------------ ANNOUNCING The Thirteenth 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 eleventh annual Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization from June 23 to July 3, 2008 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 graduate students. Approximately 25 Fellows are selected annually, each of whom receives free room, board, and tuition during the program. (Fellowships do not cover, however, 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 February 25 to: Paul Jaskot, Department of Art & Art History, DePaul University, 1150 W.
