News for Spring 2015
The JS faculty has been working very hard to keep Jewish Studies constantly developing.
We are now in our second year of sponsoring 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.
Our proposal for a Jewish Studies major, submitted to the College last April, is now about ready to progress to the Board of Regents (where it has several committees to pass through). See our website on the Proposed JS Major.
This year we have been planning our hosting of the 27th annual conference of the Midwestern Jewish Studies Association next Fall, October 18 and 19, 2015 at the Eldridge Hotel in downtown Lawrence. We are proud to have been invited to host this major event.
In the meantime, we are hosting and sponsoring numerous events this Spring; check out our calendar!
We're getting better all the time!
