June 21, 2021 | Ended

The Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy (ISGAP) is seeking Scholars-in-Residence for its upcoming annual ISGAP-Oxford Summer Institute for Curriculum Development in Critical Antisemitism Studies.

The Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy (ISGAP) is seeking Scholars-in-Residence for its upcoming annual ISGAP-Oxford Summer Institute for Curriculum Development in Critical Antisemitism Studies.

The intensive one-week program — to be held Aug. 1-5, with both in-person and virtual spots available — is dedicated to the development of antisemitism studies as a recognized academic discipline.

The workshop will feature a distinguished speakers slate of leading experts, including ISGAP Chairman and human rights icon Natan Sharansky, Prof. Irwin Cotler, Prof. Sylvia Barack Fishman, Prof. David Patterson, and Prof. Benny Morris, among others.

The program is meant primarily for professors with full-time college or university positions, though exceptional faculty, doctoral, and post-doctoral students will be considered.

Scholars-in-Residence will be required to develop a course syllabus and curriculum in the interdisciplinary study of critical contemporary antisemitism. The course syllabus and curriculum is to be taught at the Scholar-in-Residence’s home university for course credit, on at least two occasions, upon completion of the program.

A limited number of spots are also available for university students with strong grades, proven leadership skills, and commitment. Successful applicants will qualify as Elie Wiesel – Martin Luther King Jr. Scholars, who will work on student-led projects to help combat antisemitism and racism on campus.

More information and the online application can be found on the ISGAP website here.

Founded in 2004, ISGAP is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to scholarly analysis of the origins, processes, and manifestations of global antisemitism and other forms of prejudice as they relate to policy.
