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.

HEBR4901 Final Year Dissertation
Students in the final year of their degree have the option of writing a Final Year Dissertation (FYD). The FYD is an independent research project, written under the supervision of a member of staff, and is worth 1 course unit towards the BA degree. The FYD is an opportunity for students to explore a particular topic in depth, and to bring together the skills they have acquired on the course. In letters of recommendation to prospective employers, members of staff often refer to a well-written FYD as a tangible demonstration of a student's ability to carry out research and to write reports.
Finalists who wish to write a FYD should inform their Personal Tutor during registration, and enrol for module HEBR4901 on PORTICO and on their enrolment form.
Each student enrolling in the FYD course unit should secure the agreement of a member of staff to supervise it. When the approval of the staff member has been secured, the accompanying form should be completed and submitted to the HJS departmental office.
Students should meet with the supervisor of their FYD as necessary, but no less than once a term.
The Final Year Dissertation should be handed in to the HJS administrators. The FYD is usually given a first marking by the member of staff who supervised it, and a second marking by another member of staff. The external examiner may review it as well. Students will receive a marked copy of their FYD and their final mark after the meeting of the HJS Board of Examiners at the end of the third term. One copy will be kept on file in the Departmental Library (where students can consult copies of previous FYDs).
All FYDs should follow the guidelines of the Departmental Style Sheet for Essays: The How to… Guide.
A copy of the enrolment form for HEBR4901 can be downloaded as a Word document.
