The Sussex Weidenfeld Institute of Jewish Studies at the University of Sussex ( in cooperation with the Center for Jewish Studies of the Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz invite PhD students to apply for the biennial Max and Hilde Kochmann Summer School for PhD students in European-Jewish History and Culture 2023.

The Summer School brings together early career researchers who are currently working on topics in Jewish history and culture, giving them the opportunity to present and discuss their projects in an informal and friendly atmosphere with leading scholars in the field. The Kochmann Summer School continues the tradition of previous events, creating an interdisciplinary network of new scholars engaged in areas of European-Jewish Studies, Thought and Culture from the early modern period to the present day. This year we particularly encourage scholars exploring the intersection between digital humanities and Holocaust commemoration to apply. 

Applicants must be PhD students at the time the Summer School commences. 

Candidates are invited to send, via email, a 500-word proposal outlining their PhD project, a short CV and one reference from their supervisor or relevant scholar in the field. Applications must be in English and sent as one PDF document to:
