Subject Fields:

Jewish Studies scholars do not only use interdisciplinary methods, but are also involved in multi-disciplinary networks, cooperating and communicating with colleagues from a wide variety of fields and geographical centers. At the same time, research into Jewish history, culture, languages and the like is not limited to Jewish Studies departments, creating yet wider networks and greater diversity.

The twelfth EAJS congress “Branching Out. Diversity of Jewish Studies”, taking place in Frankfurt/Main (Germany) on July 16th – 20th 2023, will showcase and celebrate that diversity which is such an integral part of Jewish Studies: it is reflected in research topics ranging from the Bible and ancient history to contemporary Jewish Thought and culture, in a multitude of different sources from all over the world, in methods and approaches from Archaeology to Digital Humanities, and the vast array of interdisciplinary networks and research approaches.

We envision the subject of diversity also to be realized via the participants of the congress: from all different fields of Jewish Studies, from all over the world, from all ages and genders, from all academic levels, graduate student to senior scholar, but all united in the shared interest in Jewish Studies.

In this inclusive sense, we welcome all colleagues working in Jewish Studies to participate in this exciting conference in Frankfurt!
