Summer Institute for Curriculum Development in Critical Antisemitism Studies

The ISGAP-Oxford Summer Institute is seeking scholars-in-residence for an intensive two-week workshop-based curriculum development program in interdisciplinary contemporary antisemitism studies.

The program, dedicated to the development of antisemitism studies as a recognized academic discipline, will be held at St. John’s College, in Oxford, United Kingdom from July 7, 2019 to July 19, 2019.

The program is intended primarily for professors with full-time college or university positions, though exceptional doctoral and post-doctoral students may also be considered.

Under the guidance of leading international academics, scholars-in-residence will be required to develop a course syllabus and curriculum in the interdisciplinary study of contemporary antisemitism, to be taught in their home university upon completion for course credit, and to be able to offer the course on at least two occasions.

Application deadline: February 18, 2019

Full and partial Fellowships will be awarded to successful applicants. All accepted applicants must be present in Oxford for the entire duration of the Summer Institute. The Institute will commence Sunday afternoon, July 7, and conclude Friday evening, July 19. Successful applicants may be liable for tuition or processing fees.

A limited number of openings exist for exceptional graduate and undergraduate students to participate as special Elie Wiesel – Martin Luther King Jr. Scholars.

How To Apply

Submit a CV, a letter of intention, and two or three letters of recommendation, a letter from the Chair of the scholars’ home department, Dean, or Provost confirming that the participant will be able to teach the course designed within one academic year, ideally on at least two subsequent occasions. Wiesel-King Scholars are not required to submit a letter of approval for teaching a course designed upon the ISGAP-Oxford Summer Institute.  The entire submission, which should include all supporting documentation, is welcomed at your earliest convenience. The application deadline is February 18, 2019.
