The panel investigates shifts in the role of the Holocaust in European public debates in the recent past. Contrasting developments in Poland, Germany, and Great Britain, we will identify common threads as well as differences in perceiving, presenting, memorizing the mass murder of European Jewries.

The Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies at UCL is pleased to announce plans for an International Graduate Student Conference, devoted to explorations of multiple aspects of Jewish spirituality in Eastern Europe, to be held on 5th and 6th of June 2012 in London. The conference organizers invite graduate students and recent PhD holders to submit their proposals. We welcome presentations addressing any aspect of the religious history and religious culture of Eastern European Jewry, with an emphasis on their textual products. We are particularly interested in proposals which open up new perspectives and pose new questions regarding conceptual frameworks and traditional definitions used to describe Eastern Europe in the field of Jewish Studies.

The basic means of assessment for the MA degree in Hebrew and Jewish Studies, the MA degree in Modern Israeli Studies and for the MA degree in Holocaust Studies, are set out in the appropriate MA descriptions.
The submission deadline for all written work except the thesis is the
end of the first week of the third term. All work, including essays,
written assignments and the dissertation, is marked on a numerical scale.
- Candidates who complete their work with an overall average of 70 or above receive their degree with "distinction".
- Candidates whose work averages from 60 to 69 receive a "merit".
- Candidates whose work averages from 50 to 59 receive a "pass".
Should any component of a candidate's degree receive a mark of 49 or below, the candidate has the option of resitting the examination or resubmitting the written work in that component. The mark for work in non-dedicated classes will be considered only in the event of a borderline mark on the candidate's examination for that class.
The Board of Examiners for the MA degree meets once a year, in November to confirm candidates' marks. The College conducts graduation ceremonies for graduate students in September of each year.
