Jewish Studies Seminar

Since its inception in 2001, the Duke-UNC Seminar on Jewish Studies has gained a reputation as one of the more acclaimed intellectual meeting grounds in the area, bringing together faculty, graduate students, and visiting scholars who discuss various aspects of Jewish history and culture. Monthly meetings discuss current work by either seminar members or internationally renowned guests, the papers distributed in advance for all to read. Scholars from throughout North Carolina attend, and the seminar has become the major venue for scholarly interaction among the Triangle’s Jewish Studies scholars. Presently coordinated with the UNC public lecture series, the seminar is a pillar of Judaic Studies at Duke and UNC, enriching the scholarly climate in the area and strengthening the various programs in the local universities by offering a stimulating and exciting forum for academic engagement in the study of Judaism.
