Leo Baeck MA course in Modern Jewish History and Culture at the School of History, Queen Mary, University of London

The call for applications to the Leo Baeck MA course in Modern Jewish History and Culture at the School of History, Queen Mary, University of London is announced.

The Leo Baeck MA programme trains scholars towards undertaking independent research on Jewish history, culture and thought in Europe. It provides a strong grounding in approaches and theories which have influenced the ways in which scholars understand Jewish history. Simultaneously, the MA introduces students to a wide range of sources available for European Jewish studies. We pay particular attention to the Jewish response to modernity and problems around the definition and issues of assimilation and identity. A central aspect of the course is the role of antisemitism and the origins of the Holocaust, as is Jewish intellectual history, focusing on the ideas of eminent Jewish thinkers about the place of Jews and Judaism in pre-modern and modern societies.

Further information, including application instructions can be found on the website.
