CFA: AJS Paula Hyman Mentorship Program

Amy Ronek Discussion

The Association for Jewish Studies invites applications for its Paula Hyman Memorial Mentoring Program for the 2022–2023 academic year cohort. The Program was established in 2014 in memory of Professor Paula Hyman (1946–2011), a pioneering scholar of Jewish history and a dedicated mentor to women in Jewish Studies.

It pairs emerging scholars with experienced mentors, while also building a strong network among the cohort through group workshops. Participants benefit from working with their mentors and from developing a peer cohort.

The program focuses on professional development for early career scholars from underrepresented genders. This can include cis women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people, and those who are otherwise marginalized for their gender identity.

Our primary programming this year will take place at an in person workshop immediately following the AJS Annual meeting on December 20–21, 2022. There will also be some informal Zoom meetings; one in the fall and two in the spring.

Additionally, Dr. Sara Ronis, an alumna of the program and member of its steering committee, will offer an optional workshop Thursday, April 7th at 12pm Central, on how to prepare a strong application to the Hyman Program.
