The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI) develops fresh ways of thinking about Jews and gender worldwide by producing and promoting scholarly research, artistic projects and public engagement.
One of the world's only academic centers of its kind, HBI provides research resources and programs for scholars, students and the public. The Institute publishes books and a journal, convenes international conferences and local programming, and offers competitive grant and internship programs.
We regret to inform you that, per Brandeis University recommendations, we are canceling our live spring events.
HBI is rescheduling and moving many of our events to an online format. For more information please visit our events page.
HBI encourages applicants to continue to apply for our Gilda Slifka Summer Internship. We are planning for all potential contingencies, including the possibility of an online program. We will continue to accept applications until April 15.
