News for Fall 2014
The JS faculty has been working very hard to keep Jewish Studies constantly developing.
Starting this past Spring, we now sponsor study abroad programs in Israel (Haifa University, Tel Aviv University, and Hebrew University in Jerusalem) and at Jewish Studies programs in other countries: check out the Office of Study Abroad: http://studyabroad.ku.edu.
We have submitted to the Administration a proposal for a Jewish Studies major! We will post news as this proposal makes its way through the various committees up to the Board of Regents.
This Fall we welcome new professors Samuel Brody in Religious Studies and Gal Levy the AICE Visiting Israeli Professor in Jewish Studies, and our new Program Assistant Carla Aspenberg.
In Fall 2015 (September 6-7?), we will be hosting the annual conference of the Midwestern Jewish Studies Association; this Fall, 2014, the Jewish Studies Program at Kent State is playing the host.
Keep checking us out -- we're getting better all the time!
John Younger, Professor and Academic Director for Jewish Studies
