Chicago Center for Jewish Studies

Chicago Center for Jewish Studies

The Chicago Center for Jewish Studies was created in 2009 to nurture dialogue among the many disciplines, scholars, and students engaged in Jewish Studies at the University. Building on the particularly theoretical and interdisciplinary intellectual culture of Chicago, the Center aims to raise new questions and catalyze unexplored connections that will reconfigure the boundaries of Jewish Studies both within and beyond the walls of the University. Through conferences, workshops, lectures, and a wide variety of other programs, the Center seeks to place Jewish Studies into conversation with other disciplines and discourses within the academy.
