Over the last several decades, the field of Jewish Studies has grown and flourished across North America. Western University enjoys a very accomplished and multi-disciplinary faculty engaged in and committed to the field of Jewish Studies. The newly established Jewish Studies Research Group, which brings together faculty from across disciplines and faculties at Western and its affiliates, provides the institutional structure that permits further commitment and collaboration in a field that continues to have relevance in world events.
We aim to create a thriving intellectual community through noon-hour research colloquia, guest lectures, and eventually also conferences. Our group seeks to offer a space for intellectual exchange that extends membership both to our present teaching faculty and to others who are interested in research in the interdisciplinary field of Jewish studies.
