New Ph.D. program in Modern Jewish History and Culture, offered through the Pines School of Graduate Studies at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Cincinnati, and the Department of History at the University of Cincinnati. See the website: www.modernjewishhistory.net.
This unique joint program draws on the combined expertise of distinguished core faculties at the University of Cincinnati and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in modern and American Jewish history, as well as highly regarded faculty in allied areas of history and Jewish studies, in both venues. Our faculties are known for their research expertise, their thoughtful attention to teaching, and their rigorous training of graduate students. Faculty are prepared to train students in a range of subject areas, such as Jewish politics, Zionism and Israel, religious thought, migration, and relations between Jews and non-Jews. Major strengths in fields such as Jewish thought, Jewish education, and Rabbinics, as well as expertise in broader American, European, and colonial history, will deepen students’ training in all these areas. Our program presents an exceptional opportunity for students to engage in first-rate cross-disciplinary academic training with access to extraordinary resources.
Students in this program have on-site access to two world-class collections of Jewish historical material: The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives, the largest free-standing archival repository of primary source documents on the American Jewish experience, and the Klau Library, the largest collection of Judaica and Hebraica outside of Israel. These collections offer our students unparalleled opportunities for study and research.
Students may apply through either institution. More information about program requirements, financial support, graduate assistantships, and other opportunities can be found at our websites, or by contacting us directly.
