Training workshop, Jewish Studies

Doctoral and Early Career research training in Jewish Studies. The fourth postgraduate research-training event took place on 25-27 June 2019 at the University of Manchester. 19 PhD students and post-doctoral researchers from the Jewish Studies Northern Partnership institutions and other universities in the wider UK attended the event. This year we also had attendees travelling from as far afield as USA, Japan and Israel. A range of training and information sessions were offered, including advice on turning a PhD thesis into a monograph and open access publication practices, research impact, how to cope with negative responses to your work, and academic engagement with online audiences, as well as a series of sessions on 'Current Trends' in fields of Jewish Studies including Biblical Studies, Jewish Literary Studies and Palestine/Israel Studies. This year there was a special focus on writing large grants and on the job application and interview experience from the perspectives of both the applicant and selection panel. There was also the opportunity for one-to-one discussions with mentors. A screening of the film ‘The Women’s Balcony’ was followed by expert panel discussion. Further information.
