Jewish Studies Colloquia

The Jewish Studies Colloquium, which has been meeting since 2001, provides a forum for graduate students and faculty from Brandeis University and other academic institutions around the world to discuss their current research and works-in-progress. The colloquium engages a wide range of topics in Jewish studies from history and thought to political and national identity.
