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 Yiddish Forverts has recently published a report from the Graduate Student Conference on ‘Jewish Spirituality in Eastern Europe – a Textual Perspective,’ held at the Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies, UCL on 6-7 June, 2012.

Over a period of three years, the Hebrew and Jewish Studies Department at UCL has been cooperating in a research project devoted to 'Cultural Continuitiy in the Diaspora: Paris and Berlin in 1917-1937', based at the Department of European Studies and Modern Languages, University of Bath, and in cooperation with the Centre for European and International Studies at the University of Portsmouth. The project had been funded by the Leverhulme Trust Academic Collaboration-International Network scheme. Among the initiators of the project had been the late John D. Klier. More...
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.

Non Resident Research Degrees
Non-Resident Research Degrees (Mphil/PhD)
in the Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies
Under exceptional circumstances, members of the Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies can direct the research projects (towards either the MPhil or PhD degrees) of students who are not resident in the United Kingdom. This is called the "Non-Resident Programme" (NRP).
To enroll in the NRP, candidates must satisfy a number of criteria:
- They must possess a First Class or a good Upper Second Class British degree in an appropriate subject, or a foreign equivalent (for example, an American GPA of A-)
- They must demonstrate knowledge of the appropriate language(s) they will require to pursue their research.
- Applicants who are non-native speakers of English must demonstrate proficiency in English. The following link provides information on proficiency examinations accepted by UCL: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate-study/application-admission/english-language
- They must demonstrate that they have access to the resources necessary to carry out their research. Ideally, they should be able to access to the facilities of an appropriate research institution, for example, a national library or archive, or a university research library.
- They must submit a detailed programme of research to their prospective research director.
- The candidate is required to meet in person with their research director (at any venue) at least once a term, or twice an academic year.
- The candidate must maintain the UCL Graduate Research Log.
- The degree can only be pursued on a part-time basis This is normally five years in length for both the MPhil and PhD degrees. The upgrade from MPhil to PhD status normally takes place in the third year.
- Students are not able to claim Continuing Research Status (CRS--non-fee paying status) at the end of five years.
- In all other respects, students registered in the NR Programme are subject to the same regulations as all other internal students of UCL.
- Students may begin their programme of research at the start of either the first or the second academic term, but not the third.
- Fees for the programme are the same as for part-time resident research students, depending on their status as UK/EU or non-UK/EU students
Applications: Prospective candidates should ensure that they meet all of the above qualifications for this degree, because no exceptions can be made to the regulations. If they wish to explore the possibility of NRP status, they should contact the Graduate Tutor by email through the Departmental Office:
Jewish.firstname.lastname@example.org with the heading: "Graduate Tutor--NRP"
The Graduate Tutor will decide if the applicant meets the requirements for the degree, and will put them in touch with a prospective supervisor.
